More snow is in the works for the state Which means even better news for the drought problem.

Most river basins are above their 30-year averages after 5 years of dry conditions.

The southwest part of the state is the area hit hardest by the drought.
Now, it's seeing the deepest snowpacks.

Melting snow contributes about 80 percent of the water in rivers, lakes, and reservoirs.

Eight major river systems provide water for about 10 states.
