Colorado statewide snowpack is at 212% of average

After Colorado’s exceptionally snowy October, Colorado’s current snowpack is more than twice its typical early November level.

The data is from the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), as of Friday’s official update.

The highest snowpack levels are in northern Colorado, where some areas are more than three times above where they should be for early November. Most of the snowfall came over the past two weeks, as a series of strong and exceptionally cold storm systems moved through the state, dumping feet of snow across the northern mountains. Because most of October’s snow events arrived from the north, Colorado’s northern mountains — the Park, Medicine Bow and Front Ranges — saw the most overall snowfall.

Because of that, though, some parts of southern Colorado are running a tick behind average snowpack levels, as of Friday’s update.
