Intermountain West Drought Early Warning System -
In support of the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS), our office regularly monitors drought and climate conditions in the Intermountain West (CO, WY, UT, AZ, NM). Our monitoring efforts include a weekly summary and assessment of conditions and a recommendation to the U.S. Drought Monitor.
January 15, 2019 NIDIS IMW Summary -
Most of the Intermountain West has seen an active weather pattern since the beginning of the new year. Temperatures have been below average west of the Continental Divide and above average east of the divide. As we brace for more wet weather, we're now in a "make or break" time of the year. January and February will largely decide how the total seasonal snowpack will look and our water supply situation will become clearer.
