California’s Sierra Nevada snowpack measured a meager 15 inches in some places, officials announced Wednesday.
State water officials say recent storms have not made up for this year’s dry winter, leaving California’s snowpack at below average levels.
The state Department of Water Resources took its final snow survey of the season on Monday and found the water content in the snowpack was 144 percent of normal.
Recent storms have made up for January’s dry weather, keeping California’s snowpack above average, state water officials reported Tuesday.
California officials expect to deliver more water to farms and cities than they did last year despite a relatively dry January.
The snowpack in California’s mountains is holding nearly twice as much water than average for this time of year.
