DescriptionTwo-thirds of the annual runoff from watersheds in the Allegheny Plateau of central New York comes from the snow-or snow and rain that falls in December through April. Although the amounts of precipitation in this period are fairly uniform from year to year, the proportion that falls as snow varies; so does the amount that accumulates on the ground, and its duration and rate of melt. The differences in ground cover also affect snow deposition and melt and the timing and amount of runoff from this snow.
