The recent El Nino rains brought increasing snow to the Sierra mountains and across the state.

According to the National Weather Service Sacramento, the Northern Sierras in Trinity County are at 120 percent of normal snow pack with the snow water equivalent of 22.7 feet.

The central Sierras are currently 116 percent of normal with 16.6-feet of snow water. Statewide mountain ranges have received their own share of snow, sitting at 114 percent of normal levels, which equates to about 20-feet of snow water.

The NWS Sacramento said they are still gathering data and will make a full report later in the week.
