An abundant snowpack boosted by late spring storms could fill Northern California's thirsty reservoirs, state water officials said.

On Monday, the state's snowpack was 167 percent of normal for this time of year, California Department of Water Resources spokesman Don Strickland said.

For three years, lower precipitation and snowpack cut water allocations across the state, Strickland said. But late storms this spring have increased the allocations to 45 percent of what was requested, up from 5 percent. That number could go a bit higher after this week's wet weather, he said.

Great news! Hopefully this also means very active waterfalls during my next scheduled trip (a few weeks away). Cheers!
