Snow pack is only 17% of normal for this time of year. Levels on some of the key lakes are close to normal but without good snow pack they will no doubt drop quickly over the summer. Overall not good news for the rivers and Delta.

Winter started out like gang busters in December and then just fizzled.

There is bare ground showing in the mountains where the ground should normally be covered with a deep layer of snow.

I am afraid that this is going to be a very serious fire season this year.
