November brought mixed results for precipitation for the region, with most Colorado and Wyoming mountain areas wetter than average, and nearly all of Utah much drier than average. The snowpack is still lagging behind normal conditions in most of the region’s basins, with southwestern Colorado, southern and eastern Utah, and southeastern Wyoming under 70% of median. Most indicators continue to move in the direction of El Niño, with the forecasts indicating that the probability of onset is around 60% through the winter months.
