 -M   = Missing data

  *   = Data may not provide a valid measure of conditions.

Units = inches for the Current and Average Snow Water Equivalent and


Total Precipitation values



If the Basin wide percent of average value is flagged as potentially

invalid, care should be taken to evaluate if the value is representative

of conditions in the basin.



The SNOW WATER EQUIVALENT Percent of Average represents the snow water

equivalent found at selected SNOTEL sites in or near the basin compared to

the average value for those sites on this day.



The TOTAL PRECIPITATION Percent of Average represents the total precipitation

(beginning October 1st) found at selected SNOTEL sites in or near the basin

compared to the average value for those sites on this day.
