ARTICLE EXCERPT: Last month's second-half warming trend substantially melted snow in the mountains at most elevations, causing rivers and streams to rise, according to the latest snow survey data released by the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service this week.
Although snowpack is actively melting, Brian Domonkos, NRCS water supply specialist, said a few northwestern basins continue to be above average. The Flathead, Kootenai, St. Mary’s, Milk and Lower Clark Fork River basins continue to be at or slightly above average. Most other river basins have seen a decrease in average over the month and were slightly below average on May 1, according to the NRCS.
