Observation: Turnagain

Location: Turnagain Pass NRCS SNOTEL - Center Ridge

Route & General Observations

A quick look at current snow depth and SWE (Snow Water Equivalent) numbers compared to past years. Data from the NRCS SNOTEL at Center Ridge on Turnagain Pass (https://wcc.sc.egov.usda.gov/nwcc/site?sitenum=954&state=ak).

As of today we are sitting at just over half of what we would normally be for SWE. For snow depth, we are the 2nd thinnest January 10th, yet there are only data since 2004 when the sensor was installed. Graphs below.
