May 1 Snow Results are…..Bad….

Kern River Basin snow results for May 2021

Although many of the sites were not surveyed this month, what little is there shows bad news for the Kern River Basin. As of the May 1 survey date, the Kern River is at 0%. If we look at the US Forest Service snow monitor for California, which does use snow survey data and remote sensing by NOAA, you can see there really is not large masses of snow in the Kern River Basin. It is a dry year and reports of Giant Sequoias still smoldering from the SQF Complex in 2020 shows how dry it really is out there. Plan accordingly this summer and be water wise!

    For anyone familiar with Big Whitney Meadows, should I be concerned about no water at end of June 2022. Permit for heading over Cottonwood Pass then.
