Despite the three storms that have hammered the Front Range and prairie, much of the state's snowpack is below average.

There's no snow in forecast except for the mountains and temperatures should reach 50 by mid-week.

The deepest snow has fallen in the northeast, where the snowpack is 128 percent of average.

Livestock producers say there have been no major losses there with ranchers able to round up loose cattle on horseback.

In the southeast, where at least three-thousand cattle are believed to have died, the snowpack is 124.

The Upper Colorado, which feeds many downstream states, is 101 percent.

The Gunnison is 89 percent, Yampa-White River 79 and San Miguel 75.
