Since September, Rye has received 161.2" of snow and over 12" of liquid equivalent moisture.  Pretty impressive.  They average 130" per year.  El Nino years are usually pretty generous with the snow for our Southern Mountains, and this year has been no exception.  Looks like two more storms this week.  The Tuesday night through Wednesday storm will likely sock the southern areas again.  Too early to tell about the Saturday storm, but certainly something to stay tuned for...
