Drought Like Conditions

We will have the El Nino, it's just luck--if we win the jackpot and get a wet summer, Hopefully some drought will end of the busting weather and moisture would come back to Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, will get remnants of Pacific hurricane could end this drought.

I remember Hurricane hit in Southern California landfall are very rare was 1858 San Diego Hurricane, then 1939 Long Beach Tropical Storm, then Hurricane Nora 1997 since 1976 Kathleen.

We Hope the Hurricane will hit in the Southern California as a Category 1 storm in Rosario Beach at Baja then hitting in San Diego, then Los Angeles as a tropical storm, then tropical depression in Victorville, then extropical remnants low in Utah, Nevada, then Wyoming.

Where's the rain!!!

We need to get super rainy season in Central and Northern California, and we need to get in Southern California, I'm so sick of the sun!!! We need to have super marine layer during the Summer Time, and I really sick and tired of the heat waves and wildfires like 90 or 100 degrees around July, August and Early September. We need to cool off the marine layer in beaches. Rain is also in East portions of California deserts and mountains around July.

All I could think about the lots of rain is either live in Northern California, Oregon or Washington.

No luck in sight for California anytime!

Sadly and unexpectedly, this winter has been ridiculously dry for California (especially Northern California--which is dealing with extremely big rainfall deficits). Oh come on! Last winter was dry--and it was a weak El Nino (which was very dry for Northern California). Now a La Nina is present, and it's even worse. If this La Nina lingers around through next winter, we are absolutely screwed unless that La Nina will bring some above-average precipitation to all of Northern California, like it did in 2016-2017 winter which was surprising and busted the drought in Northern California. Either El Nino and La Nina can be dry for us, it's just luck--if we win the jackpot and get a wet winter, which doesn't seem like it will be happening anytime soon. Hopefully some drought busting weather and moisture would come back to California, we desperately need every single drop we can get and stop these sickening/nasty droughts and fire seasons!

Where's the rain, I'm sick of sun!!!

I’m tired of this heat in February, this is ridiculous. We need weeks of rain and thunderstorms. I would like to live in Portland or Seattle. It does get rain a lot.

Give used to cold front rain

I remember that heavy rains during the September 2005 with remnants of Hurricane Max, then in September 2007, we had a cold front during the first day of Autumn, not a monsoon season, then We had the Pineapple Express storms from October 17-22, 2004, it was due to ongoing with a El Nino.

Summer Weather

We do need the rain until the monsoon arrives until end of June or beginning of July, then August will have heat waves and Monsoon Thunderstorms, just before the Hurricane Jimena landfall in Southern California around end of August, Mid To Late September we had 2 remnant lows of Marty and Nora. Can it be rain.

Give us the rain

I am sick and tired of this dry February weather. We need some super rainy in California. All of Miracle March and Awesome April get a lot of rain. I could live in Portland or Seattle.

western weather

I am a Calif. native, and the weather is trending hotter and drier than I can remember. Summers extend in some areas of the West well into late fall or early winter especially in Calif. & Oregon. In the 55 years I have never seen more severe droughts and fires than we have now. And one big storm in N. Calif. doesn't spell a normal winter, and it's mid-feb. now. Used to have glaciers on Mt. Shasta but they melted in the mid 1990's. There is global warming happening. When it snows, the levels are for the most part 1000 ft. higher than in 60's. Trees need to be replaced for transpiration(O2 release) or it may just get worse. Not to even mention fossil fuels. Even here in Utah where I live, it doesn't snow as much on the valley floor as it did 20yrs. ago. Also the Japan Tsunami event tilted the earth axis some 7-8 degrees, which may have some effect on the western jetstream. Or maybe I'm just full of it. But it pains me to see the west coast turning for the worst. Don't think the Almanac accounts for this, so it's not that reliable anymore.

100% Accurate Forecast for the Sierras

Farmers Almanac says "late January for coldest and stormiest periods" and we just got slammed with a massive blizzard and 5' - 10' feet of snow in the last 2 weeks of January. I told a few people it was coming. They must think I am a prophet now. LOL. Well done guys. You never fail me.


for those of us that live in burn scar areas, buy some seeds and scatter them when you take a walk. The flowers will attract bees and provide some protection from run-off. Some areas give free tree saplings.
