Above Average Snowpack Recorded

Above Average Snowpack Recorded 

The Department of Water Resources today recorded above average snowpack during their manual snow survey at Phillips Station in the Sierra Nevada range. They found a snow water equivalence of 28.1 inches, a significant increase since the January 3 survey, when just 6 inches was found there and above the average of 18.4 inches. Snow water equivalence is the depth of water that theoretically would result if the entire snowpack melted instantaneously. Statewide, DWR’s electronic readings from 101 stations across the Sierra Nevada reported 173 percent of the February 2 average.
