The Southwest has experienced an on-again, off-again winter snow pattern. As we prepare for the spring snowmelt, moderate (D1) to exceptional (D4) drought persists across the region.

It also took a closer look at April 1 snowpack conditions along with a deeper dive into snow data and how this year's snowpack will translate into runoff and streamflow through spring.
