California Snowpack Still Well Below Normal

Posted: Updated:

California's Department of Water Resources says its latest survey shows the Sierra Nevada snowpack is still well below normal -- bad news for the drought-stricken state.
The survey was made Thursday as the first of two back-to-back Pacific storms lightly blanketed the Sierra with fresh snow.
The department told The Associated Press manual and electronic readings show the snowpack's statewide water content at 24% of average for the date.
The northern and central Sierra snowpack provides about a third of California's water supply. 
More snow is expected from the week's second and more powerful storm which is expected to arrive late Thursday and last into Saturday.  (AP)
