It’s dry in Idaho- Think Snow!


brooke_monstarWhile we do have snow at our house in Horseshoe Bend, we don’t have much. River levels may be a little more ‘normal’ this year unless precip picks up… You can also check out the Snow-Water Equivalent graph for Payette Basin HERE.

TWIN FALLS — A report from the U.S. Natural Resources Conservation Service shows that snowpack levels across Idaho are lower than normal, but could still recover if precipitation picks up.

The Times-News reports that the numbers from the Conservation Service show most streams and rivers in south-central Idaho could run at just half or 70 percent of their average flows this spring and summer.

According to the National Weather Service, Idaho was one of only four states in the contiguous U.S. to get below-average rain and snow in December.
