The Sacramento Bee brings us this satellite view of the past 5 year snowpack history in the Sierra. Needless to say, a lot’s changed since the dreaded 2014/2015 season.
“Entering April 2017, the Sierra snowpack is 164 percent of normal. That’s a big difference from a few years ago – the snowpack was 6 percent of normal in on March 29, 2015. This series of satellite images shows the snow accumulation from space at roughly the same time of year for the past five years.” – Sharon OkadaThe Sacramento Bee
