We reported yesterday on the Drought Conditions that persist in the Tahoe area. Today, we bring you this quick report from NOAA on California’s snowpack. 

“It has been an extremely dry start to the 2013-2014 winter, as many of you are more than aware. California Department of Water Resources did a snow survey last Friday and the image shows a summary of their findings. The northern and central Sierra snow pack is only 10-21% of normal. There are a few chances for precipitation mid-week through the weekend, but nothing significant by typical Sierra standards.” – NOAA, Sacramento
