Concern Over Montana's Low Snowpack

 Recent projections from the Montana Climate Office (MCO) indicate alarming snowpack deficits across Western Montana, signaling potential water shortages for the coming year.

Consequences include reduced water for agriculture, recreation, and fisheries, with potential closures and restrictions.

Despite hopes for recovery, experts predict 2024 to have the lowest or near-lowest snowpack in critical watersheds, urging proactive planning and adaptation strategies.

MCO researchers plan to publish their findings, to enhance snow forecasting and environmental predictions in Montana.
