Low Snowpack Conditions in Arkansas River Basin Persist

January 22, 2013

Snowpack conditions in the Arkansas River Basin continue to be below normal. The latest numbers released today show the snow to water equivalency at about 3.5 inches. This time last year, that number was pushing six inches. Overall, the basin is about half of where it should be. Across Colorado, the numbers are much closer together, though statewide basin numbers are still about 64% of normal.
