Watching the giagundous snow pack north of Oroville Dam

The Watchers
Sierra snowpack jumps from 19 to 98 percent in just 7 days, U.S.

Snowpack over the Sierra has increased dramatically in just 7 days after a series of storms affected the region last week. The sudden change gives California its wettest start to the Water Year (October 1 – September 30) in more than 40 years. A new series of Pacific storms will bring periods of heavy low elevation rain and mountain snow to much of the western U.S. through the Christmas weekend. Isolated urban and small stream flooding impacts will be possible along the immediate West Coast and into portions of the Central Valley in California this week.” . . .  (more)

Lake level at Lake Oroville has been steadily increasing by over a foot per day for the past week or two. At this pace the Lake level will be over 800 by the end of May. This will put us on a June-July lake level watch. We will be coming into the snowmelt months pretty soon. I have been watching the lake level every couple weeks for months. I have screenshots from the past months. The Sierra Nevada’s have record snow pack.

This article is from the beginning of January. I’ve heard that additional snowfall after January hasn’t been as robust as in the beginning of Winter.
