Truckee, CA, is currently experiencing its most prolonged consecutive days without measurable precipitation during meteorological winter since 1990, reports The Sierra Sun. As of today, it has been 34-days.
The old record may be beaten with no precipitation in the forecast for at least the next couple of weeks.
“It looks like we’ll beat the old record by quite a bit.”
– Andrew Schwartz, lead scientist at the Central Sierra Snow Laboratory
Thanks only to a record snowstorm in December, the snowpack in the area sits at 73% of normal.
Let’s all hope the pattern changes soon. Miracle March, anyone?
