I live in the San Francisco Bay Area and have always had a fascination with weather, its extremes, and stats. I'm also in CoCoRaHS: Belmont 0.7 WSW.

After a surprise overnight shower yielding 0.02", the remainder of Saturday was clear and mild, with temps topping out around 60° under full sun. This shower was probably the month's final rainfall, which has, thus far, totaled 0.57". Combined with January's 0.35", our 2013 total is a very dry 0.92", only 8.6% of the 30-year Normal of 10.66" for these combined months.
Looking further back in the current Water Year (July 1, 2012-June 30, 2013), we are faring better - now being up to 12.60" here in Belmont. However, we are still only at 63% of the Normal of 19.96" (as of the end of February).
What will March 2013 bring? The month's Normal precipitation is 3.63", which gives a running Water Year total of 23.59". We have a long way to go to catch that amount. In the meantime, get out and enjoy the clear, mild weather. Last Friday morning, I took advantage and visited Pillar Point/Maverick's Beach. Awesome day to be out and about.
