Wyoming snowpack looking strong

Wyoming snowpack continues to climb. This year's snowpack remain above 30 year average levels this winter. The Natural Resources Conservation Service reports that the state's snowpack entering this week is 135 percent of normal.

The snow-water equivalent in the Upper North Platte basin is at 121 percent, lower North Platte at 110 percent, South Platte at 138 percent and Laramie River at 138 percent.

The lowest state median is 102 percent in the Belle Fourche drainage. The highest is 169 percent in the Upper Green.

Last year at this time the snowpack was 85 percent of normal because of a lingering drought.

This year, no part of the state is below normal.
