Impacts Reports

Box Elder County, UT, FSA

Have had some moisture, but most of the months since October have still been below average. While snowpack in the Bear River drainage just went over 100% with the most recent storms, the west part of the county has still been a little below average for snowfall and precip. In Tooele County, they've gotten a lot of snow south of Great Salt Lake, but the west part of the county is about like Box Elder. They are still far behind from a dry spring and summer last year.

Central UT, FSA

There has been quite a bit of activity recently, but with moisture more confined to the mountains than the desert valleys. Things are looking good right now, but still waiting to see what happens in the spring.

Gunnison, CO, BLM

West facing terrain in the region have been hammered by high winds lately out of the northwest. It has been blowing out the snow in some areas, which could possibly mean less available snowpack (not being measured by SNOTEL) for melting in the spring.

Pueblo, CO, DWR

Area is doing very well, with the nearby Sangre de Cristos looking really good. Storms have moved northward lately, so it has dried up a bit closer to Trinidad. Soil moisture is holding up in the lower elevations though, thanks to the passage of consistent smaller storms.
