Colorado Snowpack is a Whopping 500 Percent Above Normal

It’s June, and higher elevations in Colorado are still packing on snow. A brief melt in May has slowed, keeping snow levels at nearly unimaginable levels after years of drought in the state. Statewide, the snowpack is 517 percent above normal; in the San Juans, it’s an unbelievable 786 percent above normal. Good news for skiing, potentially bad news for floods. “I wouldn’t say go out and get ready for a massive flood, but getting prepared is a good idea,” NWS meteorologist Natalie Sullivan told the Denver Post. “These levels are definitely something to keep an eye on, but it is not overly alarming.”
