El Nino update: Good news

Updated information from weatherwest:

“Right now, all of this water in Northern California is very good news. Enough precipitation is falling to generate significant runoff without greatly exceeding the capacity of river systems to manage the influx (most flooding to date has been relatively minor in NorCal). Conditions have been cool enough for this precipitation to fall as snow at the higher elevations, meaning that California’s critically important “snow reservoir” is starting to fill. There’s still a lot of empty space in Northern California’s man-made reservoirs and natural groundwater aquifers, but at the moment things are moving in the right direction from a drought relief perspective.”
