March rainfall across California was somewhat reflective of the season-to-date with above normal totals farther north in the state.
These numbers continue to tell the story that this El Niño was "different". (See http://ggweather.com/enso/compare/)

Note: There will be a minor discrepancies between these figures and those published by Calif. DWR and some NWS offices which uses the Oct. 1 Water Year instead of the historical rainfall season of July 1 to June 30. DWR also does not use the standard 30-year climatological normal (1981-2010) but rather non-standard average period of 1922-1998 for the 8-Station Index and 1961-2010 for the 5 and 6-Station Indices.
