SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Utah's snowpack is deeper than normal following heavy snowfall during January, but a National Weather Service hydrologist says it's too early to say the state is in great shape.
A February survey reports that snowpack across the state averages 167 percent of normal.
Brian McInerney of the weather service says continued snowfall into April and cool and wet spring weather would help produce runoff to fill smaller and medium-sized reservoirs.
The U.S. Drought Monitor no longer lists any region in Utah as facing drought conditions, but McInerney says a repeat of last year's prolonged dry spell could spell trouble.
