Added the 3-month Temp/Precip outlook to this snow info. All of these images auto-upate as new images become available.

It's a good one-stop, quick peek at the current/forecasted water situation.

Some years ago you guys posted the actual calculation for Sierra entry. Any chance you could do so again?

Thanks either way,

It's still alive and well. You can find it on the PCT Snow Page. It's called the 'Sierra Entry Indicator'. But, you won't like what it says this year. ;)

I saw that but was hoping to see how it is calculated again.
