California Rainfall Nearly Back To Normal In 2014

Look at the cycles in the precipitation. These are natural cycles driven by large scale Pacific ocean trends, warm PDO or cool PDO. We are currently in a cool phase PDO that should last for the next 20 years.

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

Alarmists seem to have gone quiet about the drought in California lately.

I wonder why?

  1. Russ, unfortunately this is incorrect. That post misuses California precip data to give a misleading impression. Here is a more detailed assessment. Thanks.

      Peter,

      Thanks for the link. I agree we can be in for a much longer drought, with a cool PDO in the Pacific, leading to more La NiƱa weather patterns. The cool PDO will most likely last for at least the next 20 years. We are fortunate to have some rain and snow, regardless of the water year it fell in. Let’s hope there is more to come.
