Four Stormy Weeks

Star Valley and much of western Wyoming have experienced a particularly impressive period of stormy weather. Below are two images from the Star Valley Ranch snow stake.  The snow depth as of  Sunday Feb 23rd has about covered the stake in excess of 3 feet.

The three active CoCoRaHS observers in Star Valley have totaled some impressive precipitation amounts in the past 4 weeks.

Both the Thayne and Smoot observers have measured in excess of 5 feet in the past 4 weeks. However the Star Valley Ranch observation which has an incomplete snow total has had almost an inch more precipitation. 

The Star Valley Ranch observer has had at least a trace of precipitation on 28 consecutive days!
