It's been another dry winter across much of the region, and that doesn't bode well for our water supply.

According to the National Resource Conservation Service, significantly less than average snowmelt runoff is expected in our region this winter.

The most probable forecast estimates runoff at about 70 percent of average near the New Mexico border with Colorado, and just 30 percent on the Rio Grande at Elephant Butte Reservoir.

The Rio Grande starts in Southern Colorado before flowing through New Mexico and El Paso.
