Wyoming snowpack now back to normal after storms

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) _ Wyoming's snowpack is now back to where it should be this time of year.

The federal Natural Resources Conservation Service's latest report released Monday puts the statewide average at 100 percent of normal.

Spring snowstorms over the last two weeks have sent the snowpack souring in much of the state. Each storm dropped up to several feet of snow in many mountain areas. More snow is falling Monday from yet another storm.

The snow - water equivalent in the Upper North Platte basin is now at 97 percent of average, the Lower North Platte is at 93 percent and the Laramie River is at 104 percent.

Just two weeks ago, the snowpack was 77 percent of normal and dropping quickly across the state.
