Report: Northern Nevada Snowpack Ranges Upward To 193%
CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Figures show snowpacks across northern Nevada range from 143% to 193% of median as of April 1.
The Nevada Appeal says that the National Resource Conservation Service also reports that the April 1 streamflow forecasts point toward an excellent runoff season statewide. The service says high streamflow will keep reservoirs in northern Nevada in great shape as the area heads into next winter.
April 1 snowpacks are 172% to 193% of median in the eastern Sierra, and 143% to 171% of median across the Northern Great Basin and the Humboldt, Owyhee, Snake River and Clover Valley basins.
The latest snowpack totals show the Carson Basin is at 193%, while the Walker and Lake Tahoe Basins are at 183%, and the Truckee Basin is at 172%.
