Wyoming Spring And Summer Water Outlook

by Xavier Walton, xwalton@k2tv.com

     Coming off the warmest and driest year on record, Wyoming had some making up to do in her water storage department this past winter.  

     With exception to parts of Wyoming West of the Continental Divide, majority of the state saw average to below average precipitation.  From data that was released at the beginning of April, majority of the state still remains in severe to extreme drought conditions.  

     Areas expected to be affected most include those that receive water via the North Platte River System toward eastern Wyoming and the Nebraska Panhandle.
