Monster snow accumulations the past several months have catapulted parts of the Sierra Nevada Range into the record books, busting a year-long drought at the same time.
David Rowe, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service (NWS) office in Sacramento, California, told FreightWaves that, on average, the northern Sierra Nevada receives total average precipitation of 51.8 inches for a season.
The season, or “water year” in California, runs from October 1 through September 30.
Through March 2019, this season is already up to 60.6 inches (based on the average across eight reporting stations), placing it as the fourth-wettest season on record with six months left.
1st — 2016-2017, 94.7 inches
2nd — 1982-1983, 88.5 inches
3rd — 1997-1998, 82.4 inches
4th — 2018-2019, 60.6 inches
And in central and southern Sierra Nevada the picture is very much the same, with precipitation standing at 151 percent above normal.
This time last year, the Sierra Nevada was in the grip of drought with AGW alarmists claiming it as evidence of the coming CO2 induced mass-extinction event.
Now, just a year later, there’s virtually no drought left in the entire state of California.
What will the puppets cling to next? My guess is the coming floods as the spring thaw eats away at the record-breaking snow accumulations — puppets are so predictable.
