Do Spring Storms Help With California’s Drought Conditions? Not as Much as You Might Think

 California is heading into its third year of drought after record dry stretches.

One of the biggest losses the state saw in the 2022 water year was the lack of rain and snow during the typically wet January to March time frame. Historically, December through March are the wettest months for the state. The past three years have come up short for precipitation leading to water restrictions and bigger conservation efforts.
