Mapw were re-run when twelve new sites in Maine, New Hampshire and New Brunswick reported. Snow depths and water content have really jumped since the January survey. Fives sites in Maine report over 30 inches of snow and a dozen sites recorded over six inches of water content. Highest values were reported in western Piscataquis County. The next survey will be held in early March, just before the meeting of the River Flow Advisory Commission on March 5th.

Fifty-eight sites in Maine were measured on the first snow survey of 2015. The January 4th snowstorm provided some cover for the entire state. As expected the deepest snow in the state is found in northwestern Somerset and Aroostook Counties. Ten sites in these areas reported over fifteen inches of snow. Additional data came in from New Hampshire later in the week so the maps were re-run. The next survey will be done the first week of February.
