California's water condition is much better this year than last year,
but the drought has not been eliminated completely. The reservoir and
snow pack levels statewide have improved over last season according to
the California Department of Water Resources. The above charts are from
their website and show an improved condition over what they looked like
at this time last year. The southern half of the state is not doing as
well as the northern half, but all areas have improved from last season.
With continued rain and snow through February and March this would help
increase the levels, but it may still not be enough to lift all water
restrictions in the state, however, the situation is much better now
than it has been in the past few years.
