#Snowpack news: All #Colorado basins now in the avg. range, storminess in the forecast

From the Fort Collins Coloradan (Jacy Marmaduke):

The recent burst of warm weather has — surprise — melted away snowpack in the South Platte River Basin.

As of Friday, the basin’s snowpack sat at 105 percent of average for this time of year. That’s down from about 112 percent of the average two weeks ago, after the big snow storm that greeted February.

High temperatures have been at least 10 degrees higher than normal all week, aside from Thursday, when the high temperature of 72 degrees was 7 degrees higher than a record set in 2004. This is all according to data from the National Weather Service and Colorado State University’s Colorado Climate Center.
