The snow results are in for the March 1 survey. Currently the Kings River Basin only has about 16% of the normal amount of snow for March. If the mountains do not receive anymore snow for the rest of the year, it will be at 14% for the year. This is looking to be another bad water year for the Sierra Nevada mountains as well as the valley below. However, do you noticed something in the image above?
What is not accounted for in the snow surveys is the recent storm. The snow survey dates are back in the early to mid 20’s of February. The most recent storm could potentially drop about 4 feet of snow for elevations over 7,000 feet! The results would not be included in the data above as the storm went from March 1 to March 3. We will have to wait to see what the results will be in the April 1 survey.
