Year-to-date snowfall numbers?

Post by mikefromcraig »

I'm having a hard time finding a source that provides year-to-date snowfall totals compared to the average. I'd like an average for the entire state but would settle for just one location in the mountains.

I'm just trying to track whether it is a higher- or lower-than-average season so far to start thinking about spring conditions.

Thanks!

Looks a little above the median and way higher than '23.

That link is for a single site. Statewide, 2022-2023 was a better year (well above average). However, at least this season is close to average and not even drier.

This question is analogous to asking if the United States had more or less sunshine this year than average. Any state. Doesn’t matter. But more or less.

Anyway. Check snotel for all your needs.
