Recent big snow storms did wonders for the region's snowpack numbers. It was only about two weeks ago when we told you that the Deschutes basin was sitting at 36 percent of average. Jon Lea measures the snowpack in Oregon and says the percentage has changed, dramatically; it’s now at 69 percent of average.

"To see our snowpack double in 10 days is a really positive thing. It was a really wet storm to get us back on track.  So again we're off and running once again and hopefully we'll still get some more snow accumulate in the mountains as we approach the maximum snowpack around April 1st." Lea says, statewide, Oregon is also at 69 percent of average, and more storms are stacking up and heading our way.
