Graphic of the Day - Drought Busted
As this image clearly demonstrates, the recent series of Pineapple Express Pacific storms, coming a year after one of the most powerful El Niño events on record failed to bring much rain to the southern half of the state although the northern half did receive decent rain amounts, has shrunk California's five-year drought to a considerate degree in a very short period of time despite the current weak La Niña. Current weather models are showing another Pineapple Express setting up across the Pacific and thus another deluge approaches California. God is good! Image courtesy NWS (all rights reserved).
