Colorado’s top water experts met Wednesday to assess the state’s snowpack. The news isn’t good.
Warm weather for the mountains, but ski visits are down for 2013.
2012 was a drought year for the record books. It was the warmest year ever recorded in Des Moines, Iowa, Topeka, Kan., and Columbia, Mo. and the driest ever in Grand Island, Neb. The question is whether 2013 will be any different.
Colorado’s snowpack is still below average but has improved significantly over the past month.
A mild winter coupled with higher than average temperatures are causing what little snow is left in the mountains to disappear.
