UPDATE: Following the second driest year on record and with near-record low storage in California’s largest reservoirs, Governor Newsom issued a proclamation extending the July 2021 drought emergency statewide on January 5, 2022, further urging Californians to step up their water conservation efforts as the western United States faces a potential third dry year.

December storms brought more than 200% of normal precipitation to a large area of California and Nevada. In the Sierra Nevada, much of this fell as snow. Recent storms improved the drought, however much of the state is now in a dry holding pattern due to little or no precipitation or snowfall in January 2022 with that pattern expecting to continue through early March 2022.
