With heavy snowpack in the mountains and basin index percentages at current levels, farmers
are optimistic that irrigation water will be available for the upcoming hay season.
According to the U.S. Drought Monitor's High Plains summary most of the High Plains were impacted by the major winter storm that brought blizzard conditions, heavy rain, and dangerous flooding. Except for the western region where abnormally dry conditions (D0) are present, the remainder of Colorado saw widespread improvement, due to the recent storm.
