California drought: where is the rain? 27 to 36 consecutive dry days recorded in the Bay Area


SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) – Lulls in our Bay Area storm pattern are not unusual during the wettest months of winter, January and February. However, concern continues to grow as the length of our current drought period shows no signs of stopping.

Increasing dry days total 27 to 36 consecutive days in Bay Area neighborhoods.

A record month of October and a wetter than average month of December considerably reduced our drought.

The Dryness Monitor operates on a scale from 0-Abnormally Dry to 4-Extreme. We went from the worst category 4-Extreme to 2-Severe.

This progression is now halted as the Drought Monitor for the last three weeks showed no improvement.

With no sign of rain over the next 14 days, our once improving drought could reverse.
