California Drought Update: March 1st

California’s rainy season is now a month past its mid-point (which would be around February 1st) and the drought prognosis is mixed: not as good as most hoped but it could be worse. A wet and snowy January has been followed by a very dry and very warm February (it was San Diego's warmest on record). March will hold the key as to how the season ends up. Herein is an end-of-February update on the status of reservoir, snowpack, and precipitation levels/amounts and how it compares to the last time I blogged on this subject six weeks ago January 7th.
