Just 15 percent of Arizona is still experiencing drought conditions after the wettest winter in the state in seven years, a government agency said Friday.

Dino DeSimone with the Natural Resources Conservation Service said the big storm earlier this week gave Arizona a good bump in the snowpack.

“All of our sites are measuring normal to above normal,” he said.

This year is a big difference when compared to 2016. Last year, the state’s snowpack was all but gone by early March.
