Widespread Decline Of Spring Snowpack In The West!

VARIABILITY AND TRENDS IN MOUNTAIN SNOWPACK
IN WESTERN NORTH AMERICA
Philip W. Mote 1,  Martyn Clark, and Alan F. Hamlet

5.  CONCLUSIONS
We have demonstrated that the widespread decline
in springtime SWE noted by Mote (2003) in the Northwest is broadly true in the West.  In parts of the southwest, large increases in winter precipitation have successfully offset the decreases driven by warming.  The Oregon Cascades experienced the largest losses in the region owing to a combination of high temperature sensitivity and declines in precipitation

Spring snowpack has declined in Oregon to 200% of normal.

    I see why all those ski resorts have to close down.

    We have said all along that a declination of 200% above average is not inconsistant with AGW.

    Increased snowpack is also caused by global warming. It’s going to get much worse before it gets better.
