Colorado Snowpack Almost Gone

DENVER (AP) – State monitors say Colorado’s snowpack is almost gone.

Colorado conservationist Phyllis Ann Philipps says the June 1 snowpack report shows that the statewide percentage was just 2 percent of average, with many basins reporting no measurable snow.

The Gunnison, Colorado, Arkansas, Upper Rio Grande, and combined San Miguel, Dolores, Animas and San Juan river basins are all reporting no snow.

Philipps says the snowmelt is a month earlier than normal, with many streams at their lowest levels since 2002.
