Kim stends by spellbound by the coach's oratory. without adequate reservoir storage. March precipitation has been above normal across the state with the exception of some southern and west- ern areas receiving only one - half to one - third of normal. In spite of many large monthly increases, the seas- senal totals, since October, remain well below normal in all areas except the Tongue, Powder and Belle Fourche watersheds. Although the mountain snowpack increased signifi- cantly throughout the state, the snowpack along the Con- tinental Divide is still 60 percent below normal. The northeast portion of the state continued to receive heavy snows and the snowpack is now 25 percent above aver- age in the northern portion of the Bighorns and nearly twice the April 1 average in the Black Hills. In other areas around the state, the Laramie River basin is 52 percent of normal, upper North Platte is 65 percent of normal, Wind River basin is 40 percent of normal and the Bighorn basin is 75 percent of normal. The snowpack in the Laramie range (between Casper and Wheatland) equals the April I average. Increases in the snowpack have improved the ~ream- flow forecasts for the central and eastern portions of the state, but little or no change has occurred on the west side. Streamflow volumes are expected to range from 80 percent below normal in the southwest to half the normal amount in the north- west. Volumes are expected to be the lowest on record in many areas. Streamflow volumes will be much above normal in the northeast cor- ner of the ~ate, and gen- erally 50-70 percent of nor- mal throughout the remain- der of the state. Reservoir levels in the Belle Fourche watershed are being held at a low level in anticipation of the heavy spring runoff from the Black Hills. Throughout the re- mainder of the state reser- voir storage is excellent and should help compensate for the low steamflows.

The new dates are: Doug- las, April 26; and Gillette, April 27.
