Thanks to the recent snows, and cold, Montana is packing up the snow! Most of Montana is reliant upon Winter moisture to fill and keep our watersheds flowing and full. If we have a Winter of little snowpack, our rivers tend to dry up in late summer. This impacts water rights, irrigation, and our fisheries.
Currently, Montana is sitting pretty. Our snow levels range from a low of 88% of average, along the Kootenai Basin, to a high of 111% of normal on the Bitterroot Basin. We still have an opportunity for more snow as the Spring approaches. We also know that it can snow during every month of the year in Big Sky Country.
Other watershed basins are doing well.
The Gallatin 104%.
Upper Yellowstone 109%
Clark Fork 109%
