Snow in the mountains is one of the life-lines to our valley.  Not only does it provide plenty of winter activities, it provides irrigation water for our crops.  Every year, we hope for sufficient snow in the mountains and this year has not disappointed.  While we don't have as much snow as last year, we do have a favorable snowpack, and depending on spring weather, we have the opportunity for ample supply.

The three-month weather outlook (March-May) from the Climate Prediction Center (CPC) is predicting an above average probability for below normal temperatures, along with normal to above-normal precipitation. So, what started out as an early year, may end up being fairly normal.
