The western US region is heavily reliant on spring snowmelt for much of its annual water supply. A historical analysis of snowmelt trends in response to increasing air temperatures is followed by a review of methods used to forecast the effects of future changes in air temperature on snowmelt processes along with both general approaches to snowmelt modelling and different snowmelt models themselves. The techniques and methods to be ultimately employed will depend greatly upon data availability and on the scale at which they are to be applied
