Oregon’s latest snowpack numbers are reflective of a typical La Nina weather pattern, currently settling at about 126% of average; 106% of average on Mount Hood. Jon Lea with the U.S. Department of Agriculture just completed the survey on Mount Hood where there is 91 inches of snow and 30 inches of water. “This is a good start for the water year again. Lots can still happen, it's early in the season. Typically about 40% of the snow water is on the ground by January first.” Lea says farmers hope for a gradual melt this spring. In Washington, the snowpack measurement is at 106% of average.
