MT. HOOD, OR -- Snowpack levels around the state continue to show record low amounts. These are some of the lowest levels hydrologists have seen in 25 years.  Julie Koeberle with the USDA Natural Rescoures Conservation Services say the problem is not with precipitation, but warm temperatures.  "The interesting thing is we've been receiving normal precipitation.  But it's been falling in the form of rain.  If it'd been cold enough it would have been snow and we would have near normal snow pack right now."

 

Rain helps fil  the reservoirs for irrigation, but snowpack helps sustain stream flows in the summer.  Most of the sites around the state continue to show record lows for snowpack, except at the highest elevations.
