The Atmospheric River storm California just saw dropped an estimated 5.2 trillion gallons of water on the state.

That’s equivalent to 8% of the average annual rainfall in California.

That’s equivalent to 61,000 Rose Bowls full of water.

“The storm we just experienced brought an estimated 5.2 TRILLION gallons of rainfall to Northern California! That is roughly 8% of the average rainfall California experiences during an entire year.

Keep in mind, much of this precipitation fell along the northern coast, which doesn’t significantly contribute to the state’s water supply. Additionally, since this was the first major storm of the season, much of the water simply soaked into the ground.” – NOAA Sacramento, CA today
