Water Year 2019: Feast or Famine?
Dec. 5th workshop in Irvine focuses on ability to predict winter precipitation

The Carr Fire devastated land around Keswick Dam, nine miles downstream of Shasta Dam on the Sacramento RiverWater Year 2018 marked a return to dry conditions statewide following an exceptionally wet 2017, according to the Water Year 2018 report by the California Department of Water Resources. However, all but two of the water years in the last decade were drought years.

Was Water Year 2018 – from Oct. 1, 2017 to Sept. 30, 2018 – simply a single dry year or does it signal the beginning of another drought? And what can reliably be said about the prospects for Water Year 2019? Does El Niño really mean anything for California or is it all washed up as a predictor?
