January 10, 2023 – California’s ABC 7 reports that snowpack in parts of the Sierra Vista mountains is 200% above normal for January 9. This is great news as the state enters its fourth year of drought. Snow melt will replenish California’s reservoirs, many of which were below 50% capacity in November 2022.
There is not enough snow yet to officially end the state’s ongoing drought. ABC 7 reports that most of the state remains in the extreme or severe drought categories.
