Is it time to start thinking “drought”?
If you go by the rainfall totals for San Francisco, the answer is yes. Because of a pretty dry February, San Francisco was left with only 38% of normal rainfall for the month. February is usually biggest month for rainfall in San Francisco. In normal years, 4.46 inches of rain falls in February. This year only 1.71 inches of rain fell.
It looks like San Francisco, and the rest of the Bay Area will, once again, be relying on the Sierra snowpack to get us out of the woods……. and that’s below average for the year too. So far, the snowpack is only 70% of normal. The good news? There’s still plenty of time left to make up the difference.
