And the Snow Results Are…

kern_river_march_2018_v1

Snow surveys have been completed up and down the State for the March 1 date. However, if one goes to the Kern River to see how the wilderness is fairing they would be left in suspense. Why? Well all the snow surveys have not been reported yet. Reasons are speculation, but one of them could simply be surveys were postponed till after weekend storm.

If the speculation is true, doing surveys after the storm would give a more accurate picture of what is there. The next larger drainage to the north, the Kings River, was surveyed anywhere from 1 to 7 days before the storm came through. Results of those surveys showed about 16% of normal for the month of March! As of this posting it is still unknown what the results are going to be for the Kern River. Stay tuned for updates!
