Idaho Snowpack Varied

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — An Idaho snowpack that started the year well above average hit a three-month dry patch that left every basin in the state below the 30-year average by mid-April. Most of the central part of the state is in 50 to 90 percent range.

Four of the state’s 21 basins are in the 90 to 100 percent range, including the Northern Panhandle. The Owyhee in southwest Idaho is the lowest at 34 percent. Water specialist Ron Abramovich of the Idaho Natural Resources Conservation Service says central Idaho weather stations set 16 records for least amount of precipitation from January through March.

Records go back to the early 1980s. Another 24 sites around the state saw second or third lowest totals ever recorded during those three months. Abramovich says wild weather swings are making it tough for water forecasters.
