2020-2021 Rainfall Season Recap and Historical Context


Wednesday will mark the end of what has been a dismally dry 2020-2021 rainfall season across California with many stations logging one of their top ten driest seasons on record. And even more significant are some of the two-season totals which are also among the driest, especially in the critical watersheds represented by the Sierra Nevada Indices. And most troubling in terms of the Sierra Nevada are extremely dry three and four-year totals.
