OREGON -- February's snow more than doubled the amount of snow on the ground in most locations. The increase in snow had a drastic impact on Oregon's snowpack.
Many areas got more than 200% of the normal amount for February. As of March 1st, snowpack conditions in all, but one basin are above normal. That one is around Mount Hood.
Snowpack in the John Day, Lake County and Goose Lake Basins is at 149% above normal – the highest in the state.
Oregon is still facing drought concerns even with all this snow. Sixty percent of the state remains in moderate to severe drought status.
