Looking For A Little Hope On The Drought?

November 22,2014 –

 

 

Screen Shot 2014-11-22 at 7.51.06 AMNWS Hanford has published this latest Seasonal Drought Outlook that predicts conditions to improve by March of next year with above average precipitation over the next few months.

There are a few signs already when you look at  rainfall totals so far at 2 key state reservoirs compared totals the same time last year.

At Shasta Reservoir they have received about 9 inches ( Noon Saturday)  so far this water year compared to just 2 inches this time a year ago. At Lake Oroville they have received  about 5 inches compared to 2 this time a year ago.

Here is the latest CDWR Northern Calif. Index compared  to an average year showing totals just under average.

While this key part of the state is better off  than last year at this time that does not help refill these most important reservoirs like Shasta yet as more is going out than coming in even though it should build by now.
Bottom line – keep it coming.

Here is the December outlook according to the Climate Prediction Center.
