Water Supply Outlook Summary

Since April 1, conditions have changed significantly over much of the Upper Colorado Basin. Near average precipitation occurred in the headwaters of the Colorado mainstem, but all other areas received much below average precipitation during April. In the latter, snowpack dropped nearly 30% of average due to a combination of low precipitation and warm temperatures. Forecasts for the April-July volumes dropped in many areas.
