Cloud Seeding Threshold Map

Below are all of Colorado’s SNOTEL stations labeled with either green, yellow, or red indicating if cloud seeding operations should or should not take place. Please see the key below the map for more details on the thresholds used and meaning of the label colors. The station name can be seen by hovering over the colored circle on the map. Clicking one of the circles will reveal the current percent of median snow water equivalent (SWE) for the station.






Do not cloud seed: snowpack greater then 175 percent of median

Getting close to cloud seeding threshold: snowpack between at 165 and 175 percent of median

Snowpack well below threshold: less then 165 percent of median
