Paul Nelson, KSL NewsradioWeather officials are keeping a close eye on how much water has hit the state in the past few days.

Water watchers are loving the recent storms. Hydrologist Ed Clark said, "We've made some ground coming back toward a normal year."

In the past 10 days, the Weber Basin got around five inches of water, matching the levels we were at this time last year.

"If you look back at the beginning of December this year, we were significantly lower than we were last year," Clark said.

He says we're at about 40 percent of our seasonal average. "It's a great start to the winter, and we hope it continues," he said.

Clark says we get the most water between January and March.
