MAY 1st Snowpack numbers surprising
Boise--NRCS snow survey crews says despite an April heatwave that saw 90-degree temperatures, snowpack in Idaho's high country is still 5-6 feet deep.
"Last year we had 89 inches of snow depth on the ground in the high country, today we have 51 inches, so its not nearly as much as last year," says Ron Abramovich of the Natural Resources Conservation Service. "But its still a lot of snow and a sudden warming spell could cause problems because reservoirs across the state are nearly full."
Abramovich says there's still 22 to as much as 40 inches of water in drainages across the state and says a long cool spring would help ease concerns across the state.
