Recent snowfall across the Four Corners region and into California and Nevada is helping boost snowpack levels here, although levels are still way below average in most spots. A snow drought has plagued much of the West coast (along with a rainfall one as well) so far this winter, but a series of recent storms through the middle and back half of February have helped some of those snow levels recover in recent weeks. Sure, these numbers aren't great, and in some instances are well below half of where they should be this time of year. But consider where some of those figures were in early December: The biggest improvements have been in Utah, Colorado, Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico, where a series of storm systems has helped this area build back up vital snow levels. Perhaps the best news of all is that there's more snow on the way. For more on the next series of systems set to impact the West, click here. Stay with WeatherNation for the latest on this.
