May 7, 2019 NIDIS IMW Summary -
April was a switch to warmer and drier conditions for a lot of the Intermountain West. Low elevation plains are experiencing a bit of a dry spell and are looking forward to wetter conditions in May. Snowmelt season is in high gear in the mountain areas, with a strong hydrologic response to the snowpack showing some good drought recovery.
