CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming’s snowpack continues to decline.

The U.S. Agriculture Department’s Natural Resources Conservation Service reports that snowpack is 59 percent of average this week. That’s down from 63 percent last week and 119 percent last year at this time.

The Belle Fourche (bel FOOSH’) basin doesn’t have any snow left at all. The Madison basin has the most snow at 96 percent of average.

Record mountain snowmelt caused disastrous flooding across Wyoming last year but this year federal hydrologists foresee below average runoff because of the lower snowfall.
