Napa County dreads third straight super-dry rain season
Water year 2021-22 begins on Oct. 1 and the stakes are whether Napa County escapes having one the deepest droughts in its recorded history. The county has been hit by a devastating one-two drought punch. Rainfall at Napa State Hospital for 2020-21 is about 10 inches, following a season of 12.19 inches. The average annual rainfall there is about 26 inches. A third consecutive rainfall year with a total barely denting double digits would be unprecedented in weather records dating back to 1877-78.
