    Default Color Coded Average Snowfall Map?

    I believe it was on this website where a map of the western states was posted that showed the snowfall to date and compared that amount to the average snowfall of previous years.

    I've looked for it everywhere, but I can't find it.

    I even wondered if the reason I couldn't find it had something to do with the government shutdown.

    Anyway, if someone could point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it.

    Barring that, I've been out of the loop a bit, in general how has the snowfall been?

    I know we have been getting a lot of rain in Phoenix. I've been hoping that translated to heavy snow in the western mountains.

    Thanks so much.

    if you use this link and you replace "west" in the address with the abbreviation of a state, you will get an enlarged view of the individual state that you entered.

    It has been marginal this winter.....
    Rain from Hawaii is not good for snow.
    The Arctic effect has not occurred has not happened out here.
    They mentioned we have 114% of last year, which sucked......
    We are in a drought.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you...I was driving myself nutz looking for that website.

    Dang, snowfall has only been marginal so far this year.

    I was hoping all the rain we had in Phoenix, more is on the way, meant lots of snow in the Rockies, but at least so far it doesn't appear to be that way.

    Thanks again.

    Much of CO was well past 100% by the first week of December.

    I live in the Arkansas Valley Co. We're at 109% snowpack right now and the wet months are still to come.

    Way better than last year. Fishing should be good this year. So will elk and bear hunting. Moisture means food for the game.

    Well, after the last couple of days there's about 5 inches sitting in our drive way and around the house, if that helps.

    Looks like the Sierra and Rockies are about to get a bunch of snow.

    California is looking pretty good so far, averaging 94% of normal and most of the state is in good shape.
    There are still some large areas of abnormally dry and some smaller areas of moderate drought. Definitely better than a couple of years ago.
    Most of the large reservoirs are at 90-100% of historical average.
    Snowpack is running around 50-60" for 8,000 foot elevation on up to 180" at 11,000 feet.
    Hope we get lots more snow over the weekend but currently seems to be more rain than snow at the 6000 foot level.

    By the way that link also shows the US drought monitor not just CA.
