Rain may be returning to our forecast, but this storm won’t be enough to end the ongoing drought. California hasn’t seen significant rainfall and months. The hope is that the rain forecast for this weekend will help the dry conditions and put some more water into our reservoirs. The latest map from the U.S. Drought Monitor shows that almost all of California is still experiencing severe to exceptional drought conditions. That includes the Bay Area. In Marin County on Thursday, Lagunitas Creek below Lake Lagunitas has been reduced to a series of stagnant pools of water, but it’s not all bad news.
