The snowpack is still very healthy, with a statewide average of 171% of normal for the date compared to 189% a week ago following a week of warmer conditions and little precipitation. The coming storm may once again be a warm one, raising concerns of some rapid snowmelt during the storm and possible flooding downstream.
Locally, the picture is also wet. My backyard rain gauge has gathered 15.16 inches so far, which is more than an inch higher than the average for the entire rain year since I've been measuring, starting in 1991 (my recorded average is 13.92" for 1991-2016). The official total for Modesto so far this year is 11.96", which is just short of the average rainfall for the entire year (12.16"). Modesto's records go back to 1888. The normal rainfall to date for Modesto is 6.98". It's been an interesting year, in that every single month since the start of the rainy season has been well above average. February may get to the average for the entire month by Wednesday. It's going to be an interesting week. Stay dry!
