It only took one good day and night of snow to help Crater Lake National Park get back to average.

Park officials measured 18.5 inches of fresh snow in the 24-hour period that ended Tuesday morning, pushing the on-ground total to 21 inches and upping the season total to 24.75 inches, just under the average of 25.5 for Nov. 4. Another 3 to 5 inches were expected Tuesday through this morning, but warming weather means any precipitation that falls today through Saturday night will probably be rain.
