As of Tuesday, snowpack ranged from slightly above average in northern Colorado, to 130 percent of average in the southwestern mountains.

El Nino gets the credit for bringing all that moisture to Colorado –and predictions are that the wet weather will continue into March and April. That should mean a plentiful spring runoff to fill reservoirs later this year.
