Park staff have completed the April 1 snow surveys. The water content of the snowpack in the Tuolumne drainage is 7% of average; in the Merced drainage it is 2% of average. 2015 is the driest April 1 snow survey on record.

Here's to hoping the weather figuratively shouts "april fools!" and dumps about 10 feet of snow on the high country in the next couple of weeks...

It is supposed to snow starting Sunday through Tuesday but with no significant accumulation. It would be nice if the amount was wrong and we did get 10 feet. Heck I would settle for 5.

no significant accumulation.

They're saying up to a foot at higher elevations.

I didn't see that amount in the forecasts, that would be great.

Below is a link to a map that displays all of the California weather and stream data collection stations. Many stations in the mountains collect data on snow depth and water equivalent.

This station data is hosted on a GIS (Geographical Information System) server operated by the state. If you click on a symbol then all the attribute data for the thing that you clicked will be delivered from the GIS server to your screen.

The attribute data includes a link that leads to detailed information for that station. For stations that collect snow data you will be able to display a graph showing snow depth or water equivalent over time. You can also play with various settings and produce custom graphs.

I wish there was a way to produce a map that only showed stations with snow data but, alas, to the best of my knowledge the data currently available on the state’s GIS server does not make that possible.

For an example of a station that has snow data, click the symbol directly below the center of the map.

For tips on using the map, click the “About this map” link in the upper left corner.
