Water Levels About Average

January rains washed away a lot of the low elevation snow in the mountains. That snow is part of the water supply for the state this summer. Jon Lea with the USDA tracks the future water supply and says: “With less snow up in the mountain to produce runoff later on when it melts, then the forecast a little bit.” From January 1st to February 1st, Lea says the water supply outlook went from "well above average" to "average" across the state. With more winter on the way, he says we still have time to build back what was lost.
