March 2008 Wyoming Water Supply Outlook

...Above normal water supply numbers continue to be forecasted over the Snake, Yellowstone, Powder, Tongue Little Snake, and Laramie Watersheds...

 ...Below normal snowmelt runoff volumes continue to be expected over the Upper Green, Lower Green, and Sweetwater Drainages...

 Snowpack "water" numbers and/or snow water equivalents (SWEs) were averaging near 100 percent of normal by early March across Wyoming.  There were no significant increases or decreases in SWEs across the major watersheds  in Wyoming during February and into early March.

 The Upper Green and Lower Green Watershed water supply forecasts continue to point to below average snowmelt streamflow volumes.

 All other major watersheds across Wyoming are expected to see normal to above normal water supply numbers for the spring and summer.
