It’s been a good winter, according to a Washington State Department of Ecology blogpost.
Statewide the snowpack is averaging 119 percent of normal, according to the report, which was published Tuesday.
“That number is a big WOW for farmers, fish managers, and water users in cities and towns, as they breathe a sigh of relief,” according to the post.
Temperatures have been “near-normal.” And the Climate Prediction Center is calling for “below normal temperatures for both the next two weeks and normal temperatures for the remainder of spring.”
Colder temperatures are a good thing, helping regulate snow melt which prevents rapid melt off.
