Most areas of the High Plains were free of drought or saw little change, the exception being Colorado, where the US Drought Monitor says heavy snow continued to build snowpack but also caused avalanches. With well-above average precipitation in February and adequate precipitation in March to date, improvements were made across the Yampa/White Basin. The Gunnison Basin, already well past its normal seasonal

peak, received an additional 2-4 inches of precipitation over the last week.

Severe drought (D2) improved to moderate (D1) over the San Juan Basin east

through the San Luis Valley, where the San Juans have received well-above-

average precipitation and basin-wide snowpack is already past the normal

seasonal peak
