Recent heavy snowfall in Colorado has improved snowpack levels and drought conditions in most of the state.   

Statewide, snowpack is at 133% of median and all but one of Colorado’s river basins are seeing a big boost in snowpack levels from January snowfall. The winter storm that swept through the state this weekend dumped more than three feet of snow in some parts of the central and northern mountains. 

The Gunnison River Basin shot up to 152% of normal this past week, but the news isn’t all good. The Arkansas River Basin is only at 84% of average.
