Snowpack Map for February 1, 2011

Here is the West's mountain snowpack map as of February 1, 2011, meaning that the last week's snows do not appear. The Agriculture Department's Natural Resources Conservation Service site has snowpack maps going back to 1980, if you want to make comparisons. (Click for larger image.)

In the contiguous 48 states, January was somewhat colder and drier than average.

As of the first of February, we, along with our northern New Mexico friends, were still in the tan blotch, unfortunately. About 15 inches of snow fell here at the house since then, however.
