Snowpack update Print E-mail

Selway snowpack above average

     Although snowfall has been scarce in the valley this winter, pockets of snowpack in the Clearwater Basin have hit 140% of normal for this time of year.

     Also above average are temperatures in Idaho’s mountains.  Based on the OSU’s PRISM temperature and precipitation maps, http://www.prism.oregonstate.edu/, Idaho’s January mountain temperatures have been 3-10° F above normal. This is also reflected in the mountain snowpack which has unusually high densities for early February. In fact, the snowpack is ripe and starting to melt at several sites.

Comfy on the feet - This beautiful bald eagle was seen along Lightning Creek Road on Jan. 26. “It was so beautiful that I could have taken as many photos as he wanted to pose for...but we finally drove on and left him on his perch,” said Dixie Lynn. Photo by Dixie Lynn of Harpster
