Rain, Snow Arrives in San Diego With More To Come – NBC 7 San Diego

San Diegans bought a style of winter climate right now.

“We had been truly excited after we noticed the rain,” stated Forest Padilla, a San Diego resident.

The chilly showers lasted all through a lot of the day.

“It’s nice to have the rain every once in a while,” stated Travis Robertson-Howell, a San Diego resident.

But it might be even nicer to have it just a little extra usually. The newest drought map from the National Integrated Drought Information System confirmed a lot of our area is experiencing abnormally dry circumstances. 

Luckily it would not seem to indicate drought in the world. The remainder of the state isn’t so fortunate. According to the map, drought exists in a way in roughly 95 % of the state. The state was drought-free right now final year.

“At this point in the winter it is still fairly early,” stated Mike Lee, public affairs supervisor with the San Diego County Water Authority. 

Lee says it is too quickly to lift issues.

“Just a few storms can radically improve and change the water supply conditions in the snowpack in the mountains,” stated Lee. (*7*)

And even when we do not get all of the rain we want, he says the county has a back-up plan.

“Every five years we go through a rigorous planning process at the county water authority and with all of our member agencies across the region to ensure that even if we were to have three, four dry years in a row that we would still have enough safe reliable water to meet our region’s needs,” stated Lee.

So for now, Lee says San Diegans can benefit from the moist climate as he expects extra is to come back.
