Idaho’s snowpack expected to peak

The Natural Resources Conversation Service released the fourth Idaho water supply outlook report for the 2018 water year.

Current snowpacks range from half of normal in the Owyhee basin to 120 percent of normal in the Clearwater and Upper Snake. These amounts are much less than last year, except in the Clearwater and north, where there is more snow than a year ago.

But there still may be more to come.

“We may not have seen the peak snow water content amounts yet, as additional storms are predicted to move into Idaho in April,” said Ron Abramovich, Water Supply Specialist for the Idaho Natural Resources Conservation Service.
