This winter's lackluster snow pack was well below average and has melted about four to six weeks earlier than usual. Phyllis Philipps, the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) state conservationist, reported that "statewide snowpack looks to have peaked around March 12, a month ahead of the average peak date, and began melting in late March at rates typically not observed until May."
