Mountain snowpack is a crucial source of water for many regions in the US. The snow that accumulates on the mountains during winter acts as a natural reservoir, slowly releasing water as it melts during spring and summer. Understanding snowpack dynamics is essential for managing water resources sustainably, predicting water availability, and mitigating the risk of floods and droughts. Some notable mountain ranges with significant snowpack include the Rocky Mountains, Sierra Nevada, and Cascade Range.

Status: El Nino

The Oceanic Niño Index (ONI) is a rolling 3-month average temperature anomaly, and used for tracking El Niño-Southern Oscillation climate patterns. Based on the latest data for the last 3 months (MAM), the Oceanic Nino Index is currently 0.75, signifying a El Nino period. A persistent above average sea surface temperature may signify an El Niño episode. Conversely, a below average sea surface temperature will signal the onset of La Nina occurences.
