Snow can melt surprisingly quick. I had three feet melt around here in two days of 45-55*F weather and with a day of hard rain, snow 95% gone lower down now.
Amazing how a little warmth transforms a landscape so quickly.

Snowpack is taking a nosedive:

The snowpack now is what would be average for May 9.
I'm slow and fat. Unfortunately, those are my good qualities.

I had like 6” of snow take over a week of 70+ degrees to melt back in February. So I guess it can vary
