This figure appears in chapter 50 of the NOAA-led State Summaries 2017 report.

Variations in the April 1 snow water equivalent at the Lewis Lake Divide, Wyoming SNOTEL site. Snow water equivalent (SWE) is the amount of water contained within the snowpack. SWE varies widely from year to year. In 2011, the SWE was almost double the long-term average at the end of May. The melting and runoff of this above-normal snowpack in May and June 2011 caused flooding downstream along the Snake River in Idaho. Source: SNOTEL.
