How Bad Is The Drought After That Latest Big Storm?

After four days of rainfall, the San Francisco Bay Area has seen SOME relief to some areas, while other regions remain in “EXTREME to EXCEPTIONAL Drought. Over a foot of rain accumulated in Venado (12 miles west of Healdsburg) and as a result, the coastal mountains are now considered in a “Severe Drought”, not as dismal as the remaining Bay Area. In fact, many interior valleys received less than 1 inch of precipitation in the rain gauge and the Salinas Valley tallied less than 1/2 inch from the Friday through Monday rain event. Not nearly enough to note markedly improved conditions there.
