At least one group of drought watchers plans to unofficially call an end to its drought by mid-April. That's if the state's snowpack hits 100 percent.
Meteorologists who are primarily concerned with precipitation say the statewide snowpack, which was 87 percent of normal as of Monday, is improving conditions.
But as the meteorological drought may be winding down, Colorado's hydrological and agricultural droughts could drag on for years.
The hydrological drought worries water utilities, such as Denver Water, who see drought in terms of how much water is in reservoirs and streams, and whether there's enough stored water to meet population demands.
The agricultural drought refers to a situation when the amount of moisture in the soil no longer meets the needs of a particular crop.
