Monday’s rain does little for drought

The combination of morning rains and scattered afternoon thunderstorms brought more than an inch of rain to parts of Sacramento County on Monday. The Sacramento International Airport measured 1.17 inches in the 24 hours since Monday afternoon, according to the National Meteorological Agency in Sacramento. However, heavy rainfall was very localized. For example, several meters across Sacramento reported less than 0.75 inches of rain. The measurements near Galt were just over 0.25 inches. Folsom and Davis received just under half an inch. In San Juaquin County, Lodi received 0.55 inches, Stockton received 0.69 inches and Tracy received 0.4 inches. See a full list of county rainfall reports on the National Weather Service website. These amounts of rainfall are some of the highest for the region for all of 2022 so far. Of course, the bar has dropped quite low with four days of measurable rainfall since January 1st. Even with yesterday’s rain, 2022 is still the driest year ever recorded for downtown Sacramento with just 0.99 inches of rain since Jan. 1. This also applies to Stockton, Modesto, San Francisco and Napa. This very limited rainfall has pushed NorCal deeper into drought conditions despite the promising start of the wet season in December. On Monday, Governor Gavin Newsom announced a new executive order on water restrictions, calling for local water supplies to be moved to Level 2 of the respective Water Loss Emergency Plans.
