All mountain areas of Washington state are at or above average snowfall for this time of year. According to the Snohomish County PUD, measurements taken at three elevation areas around the county show snowpack and water containment at about 160 percent of normal.
Karin Bumbaco, the assistant state climatologist with JISAO, said a wet winter and a what’s forecast to be a dry, hot summer are good news for gardeners, especially tomato fans.
“Our snowpack is normal to above normal for the state of Washington,” Bumbaco said. “It’s great news for our summer water supply.”
