Montana’s snowpack is slowly falling further below average, although some regions have made up some ground.

The Department of Natural Resources and Conservation reported this week that the statewide snowpack was at 93 percent of the end-of-February average, after starting the year with around average snow. If that trend holds through the season, streamflows will be below average this summer.
