The snow pack in Wyoming's Big Horn Mountains looks a bit better after some February snow storms.
But overall, the snow pack is still below average. Levels in the Tongue River drainage are at 86 percent of average. But data shows the Powder River Basin received 50 percent more precipitation than average in February. But a lot of the new snow will melt away this week as temperatures rise.
"We'll probably see consolidation of that snow, the depth decreasing, the water content increasing per unit of snow. We may see greater runoff amounts," said conservationist Andrew Cassiday.
Cassiday says the low nightly temperatures will keep the runoff from causing flooding problems.
