I live in a red state

From NRCS - The Westwide SNOTEL Current Snow Water Equivalent (SWE) % of Normal map shows the largest snowpack deficits (red areas) in the Cascades and Olympics of Washington, most of Oregon, the Sierra Nevada in California, as well as much of Nevada. The snowpack percent of normal in the mountains near Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington are in the single-digit range.

That is a lot of red and would be noticeably worse if Cali was on the same system.

Our forecast finally looks like winter but at 45% we are likely to budge into any great territory. Will definitely be excited for every average cold day we have and every once of precipitation.

Dumping at Crater Lake too.

They got a couple maybe three inches.
Then two 20% chance of precip days in the next 9.

We suck eggs in Oregon.

4" inches on the Hoodoo gauge(just above manzanita lift) and Mt. A is getting some. Accuweather leads me to believe March has potential.

So amazing to see snow again!

We are definitely making up for lost ground in SW Utah though it would be an absolute miracle to go from 45% to normal. We haven't seen a weeklong forecast with just snow since last winter.

The odd thing about this winter as a resort is we actually had enough water from the melt to make snow this late in the year but we rarely had the temperatures to justify it.

Hope it keeps up.

Whoa....what a turn aroun dfor SW Utah. We are sitting around 80% snowpack, a 35% change in like 10 days. We got roughly 5 feet of snow since last friday night. Never seen a storms series like this in the years I have lived in the region. Normally storms favor the northern part of the state even when they dump here but they have been missing the Wasatch all season. An odd year just got odder but it means a ton of new snow for us.

Will we get more to average out? Should be an interesting 6 weeks.

Worst Jan on record with 25" total snowfall followed up by the second worst Feb on record with 35" of total snowfall in Little Cottonwood Canyon. The Wasatch is hurting.

You colorado guys still crying? haha you guys gave me so much shit 5 weeks ago when I posted about how optimistic I was how much fun this winter has been between my ski days and awesome winter paddling days. Also, Northern Colorado never got below about 80% SWE, so i don't know why many of you Colorado folks were so tearful to begin with. And now winter came back in full force putting our snowpack in pretty darn good shape across the state! Supposed to be dry for another week, then more snow!
