The low pressure trough and frontal system is now moving through Northern California.   The valley has already cleared, but there will be a few light showers over the northern and eastern mountains until early afternoon. Gusty northwest winds will occur behind this system.

The high pressure ridge has been pushed out of the way and now the jetstream is running across the Pacific and into Northern California.   We will see several low pressure troughs and frontal systems move through Northern California over the next several days.  However, these will be weak and fast moving systems with just light precipitation.  (see map below)

The first hopeful signs of drought recovery arrived in February when the Lake Almanor Basin received a greater-than-average amount of precipitation.

That trend continued in March with a total of 6.7 inches of new precipitation recorded at the Prattville monitoring site, a figure that is more than 2 inches greater than average.

The seasonal total now stands at 16.97 inches, or 62 percent of the long-term average for this point in the customary July – June water season.
