Despite the warm start, the mountains have been experiencing heavy snowfall, which will alleviate drought concerns for the next harvest. Transportation routes through the mountains have experienced significant delays and blockages due to the weather conditions, which has caused a serious slowdown in the transportation of goods and services throughout the region.
