[1] Given the importance of Upper Colorado River Basin (UCRB) snowpack as the primary driver of streamflow (water supply) for the southwestern United States, the identification of Pacific Ocean climatic drivers (e.g., sea surface temperature (SST) variability) may prove valuable in long‐lead‐time forecasting of snowpack in this critical region. Previous research efforts have identified El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and Pacific Decadel Oscillation (PDO) as the main drivers for western U.S… CONTINUE READING
