CENTRAL OREGON -- On April 1st, the snowpack in the Upper Deschutes and Crooked River Basin showed snowpack at 94-per cent. Today it is down to 88-per cent. Hydrologist Scott Oviatt at the Natural Resources Conservation Service says it’s pretty much the same story, statewide. He says snowpack begin to melt out in April but is accelerating faster year due to warm weather. Oviatt says the long-range forecast for the Pacific Northwest for the next 1-to-3-months is for above average temperatures and below level precipitation.
