Current Weather Conditions And Latest Forecast

Heavy snow and drenching rains have left California reservoirs at high levels. The Sierra Nevada snowpack was 159 percent of normal as of Friday.

Still, the governor’s office said in a statement Monday that it is critical that Californians continue to conserve water.

The Los Angeles Times said the drought ended from a hydrological perspective last year. But state officials said they wanted to wait until reservoir storage recovered.
