As of today, it appears as if January 2015 will end up as the “Driest January” on record since 1850. That’s 165 Years! So far in San Francisco, ZERO measurable rain has been recorded.
In case you missed it, the San Francisco Bay Area experienced a round of California King Tides in December, then again this past January.
This morning’s wildfire was a grim reminder of how conditions are ideal for fire ignition. There is an elevated risk of explosive fire growth when the Bay Area experiences low humidity, gusty winds and low fuel moisture.
“Before the mid-1890s, Pleasanton’s water needs were handily served by sinking artesian wells at strategic points around town; the local water table was high enough that these did not need to be particularly deep.”
With all the crazy wet weather we had in December transitioning into a very dry weather pattern this month, is it too early to panic about water levels based on what you may have seen in the projection models for this season?
Today is Day 2 of the biggest tides of the year impacting the coastline of the Bay Area. The King Tides are back with minor coastal flooding strong rip currents and large breakers at Harbor entrances.
King tides are expected to impact shorelines across the Bay Area Monday and will continue through Wednesday.

One model suggests there is only a chance of rain north of the Golden Gate Bridge by Friday evening, another computer model indicates the system can sag farther south, producing as much as a quarter of an inch of rain.
