SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Despite being hit with a foot of new snow in northern Utah mountains this week, the state's chief snow surveyor says it's highly unlikely snowpack totals will reach normal numbers by the end of the season.

Randy Julander says the state's snowpack totals are up 4 percent to 7 percent since last week. Although he says that's good news, he says it's not good enough. But Julander says there's also a high probability the snowpack totals won't stay as bad as they are right now.

The snowpack percentages through February range from 69 percent to 73 percent in northern Utah to the mid-50s for the southeast Utah basin.

Current Snowpack Totals:
Bear River: 73
Weber/Ogden Rivers: 71
Provo River: 69
Uinta Basin: 74
Price River 60
Southeastern Utah: 56
Sevier River: 71
Virgin River: 56
