Colorado snowpack more than 40 times normal

24 June 2019 – Up to 20 inches of snow buried the high Colorado Rockies over the weekend, boosting the state’s snowpack to more than 40 times normal for the time of year.

Looking at it as a percentage, the snowpack stands at 4,121 percent above normal, according to Natural Resources Conservation Service.

Very little snow is ordinarily left by late June, but cold temperatures persisting into late spring helped preserve earlier accumulations.
