This figure appears in chapter 26 of the NOAA-led State Summaries 2017 report.

Variations in the April 1 snow water equivalent at the Noisy Basin, Montana, SNOTEL site. Snow water equivalent (SWE) is the amount of water contained within the snowpack. SWE varies widely from year to year. In 2011, late-season snowfall caused the snowpack to reach the greatest depths since 1975. Melting of this snowpack led to severe flooding across the Great Plains in the summer of 2011. Source: SNOTEL.
