California

While the rains in southern California during the past couple weeks have caused local flooding and inhibited wildfire development, reservoirs saw no increase in storage. The short term/long term (SL/L) impacts boundary shifted westward a bit in southern California to reflect the impact of recent rains. More than 97 percent of the state continues to undergo drought conditions, with 46 percent in exceptional drought, D4, the most extreme level.
