RIAC UMR Minnesota snowpack SWE March 2023

A good resource for snowpack information in the United States here https://www.nohrsc.noaa.gov/nsa/

The Snow Melt Animations are a nice touch

The cliff notes for March 2023: There is four to six inches of SWE (Snow Water Equivalent) locked up in the Minnesota snowpack, for now the weather forecasts suggest a big melt off won’t start until the last two weeks of March, some of it is melting into the ground now.
