Snow all over


Colorado's snowpack is at 134 percent of average — the highest early February snowpack in 11 years.

"Of course, the highest numbers are in the southern mountains — the Upper Rio Grande watershed is at 178 percent of average," said Mike Gillespie, Colorado snow survey supervisor for the Natural Resources Conservation Service.

The southwestern mountains are expecting another 2 or 3 feet of snow today.

The South Platte watershed is at 100 percent of average, the lowest number in the state, Gillespie said.
