    System storage is 56.2 MAF; 16.2 MAF of flood control storage is available. All 2019 floodwaters were evacuated; System storage reached 56.0 MAF on January 22.
    We expect to see an increase in System storage this week from plains snowmelt in the upper Basin.
    Plains snowpack in the upper Basin is primarily in central and eastern ND and SD (upper right quadrant).
    The Omaha District is sending out snow survey teams next week to provide on-site verifications in areas where heavy plains snow is present.
    Mountain snowpack is slightly above average (lower right quadrant).
    Refer to the 3-Week Forecast for the most up-to-date System information – pool levels, inflows and releases.
    The Gavins Point release is currently 35,000 cfs, twice average for this time of year.Releases will be increased to 38,000 cfs on Feb. 27, and to 41,000 cfs on Feb. 28.
