As rainfall begins to taper off in many parts of the state, the historical context is that this is more of a Mediocre March than a Miracle March! Rainfall today and a few showers over the weekend will add a little bit to the numbers below but in general the models have a pattern shift to high pressure and dry weather for next week. The bottom line is that while there have been good gains in rainfall statewide this month, most of California has a near zero chance of reaching normal for the season.
The March 2018 values above are through midnight March 21.
