DURANGO, Colo. (AP) - Recent storms have boosted snowpack in southwest Colorado above average, but the statewide snowpack is still lagging.

The Natural Resources Conservation Service says statewide snowpack was 87 percent of average as of Saturday.

It was 108 percent of average in the San Miguel, Dolores, Animas and San Juan Basin and 111 percent of average for the upper Rio Grande Basin in southwest Colorado.

Snowpack is below average, though, in other areas of the state.
