Signs of Spring #1 / Snow depth report – March 24, 2014

Here is a sign of spring in 2014 – you can now see the park office sign on the side of highway 17!

Another sign of spring is that the highway surface has no snow and it is dry pavement. However, a couple of snowstorms are forecasted in the next 7 days.

The snow depth report for March 24 is 142.5 cm/ 56.1 in., an increase of 13.8 cm/5.4 in. since March 17. This is the second highest snow depth this winter.

How does this compare to the previous 2 years? In 2013, there was 111.8cm/ 44 in. and in 2012 there was no snow at the snow station at Red Rock Lake.
