March Saves California From Another Drought

California Drought Before and After

Rain and snow in March has helped push any talk of another California drought into at least 2019.

The state's snowpack went from 20% of normal at the end of February to 60% of normal at the end of March, ahead of the important measurement on April 2nd.

The precipitation totals from March, combined with the record rain and snow from 2017, have also pushed California's main reservoirs to 106% of average for this time of year.
