According to Randy Julander, snow survey supervisor for the Natural Resources Conservation Service, the Christmas storm should put precipitation levels at close to average for the northern portion of the state.
"Right now the Bear River Basin is about 120 percent of average, but as you head south things get progressively worse," Julander
said, noting that the Weber, Provo and Manti areas benefited from the last week's storm that boosted precipitation levels from about 70 percent to 85 to 90 percent of average.
However, that brief snowfall left little more than dustings on the valley floor.
However, southern Utah's precipitation levels currently hover at about half of where they need to be, Julander
"This last storm did nothing for them.
South of Interstate 70, things are down to about 50 percent," Julander
