For large portions of the western US, it hasn’t been a great winter so far. On the flip side, there are some zones where it’s totally epic. Is it time for that road trip you’ve been talking about?
Let’s take a look at the snow data for the western US compared to normal. Below is the Westwide SNOTEL Current Snow Water Equivalent % of Normal as of January 15, 2018.
