BOISE -- Water Specialists in Idaho say March added little accumulation to Idaho's snowpack.

Ron Abramovich, a Water Supply Specialist, says snowpack percentages have decreased again due to three straight months of below normal precipitation.

Northern and Eastern Idaho are faring well with 80 to 90 percent of average water supply.

However, Southern and Central Idaho are ranging at much less at about 35 to 65 percent.

Still, he says irrigation supply should be adequate for the Payette region and marginally adequate for the Boise Basin.

Snow surveys are conducted at the end of each month through May.
