Sierra Snow Survey Is Dissappointing

April’s survey of the Sierra Nevada snowpack showed dissappointing results for this year’s water supply.

Electronic readings of the snowpack in the central Sierra, indicates only a fifty-one percent of year-to-date average for water content.

Results were more dismal in the southern Sierra, where readings showed just thirty-nine percent of normal for April first. To the north, the readings were a little more promising where the measurments indicated the snowpack to be at seventy-eight percent of the average.

Overall the statewide readings in the Sierra averaged out to just fifty-five percent of normal.
