Halfway through January, we published an article looking at how California reservoirs were doing after the “atmostpheric river” dumped a series of storms on our heads.
Here is an updated version of the table of local reservoirs from that article:
|Name of Reservoir||% of Capacity||% of Historical Average||% of Capacity||% of Historical Average|
data from January 14
data from January 13
The green percentages are as of today, March 1.
This from the California Cooperative Snow Survey for the Southern Sierras as of January 16, 2023, with updated information in green as of February 28.
|Number of stations reporting||32||29|
|Average snow water equivalent||32.1 inches||42.0 inches|
|Percent of April 1 average||142%||162%|
|Percent of normal for this date||288%||186%|
The current local seven-day forecast calls for rain today, then sunny for the rest of the week.
