SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - While Utah’s snowpack is only average, officials say that means the state is in much better shape than it was last year.

Natural Resources Conservation Service Snow Survey Supervisor Randy Julander tells the Deseret News (https://bit.ly/22ihPrh ) that current snowpack is nearly three times more than it was last year. He says the water year that ended April 1 left most of Utah with an average amount of precipitation.

Southeastern Utah received about 119 percent of average precipitation and the lower Sevier Basin also fared well with 124 percent.

Julander says southern Utah snowpack is about 97 percent of normal.
