Meanwhile, early winter snow through January helped statewide snowpack. But since then, mountain moisture has been limited, despite the I-25 corridor's fruitful February so far. To keep up with late winter and spring snowpack, incoming storms need to pack a bigger punch.

Snowpack may end up below normal this year with a projected drier than normal Spring ahead, according to the Climate Prediction Center.
