Sacramento is fast approaching a record for days without rain in the winter.
Normally winter months are when Northern California see significant rainfall - that has not been the case, as the state of California is still heavily affected by a "megadrought.:
According to the California Department of Water Resources, the state snowpack is at 70% of the average for this time of year, and 55% of the average for April 1. That is slightly improved from this time last year and substantially better than the region's last major drought in 2014 and 2015 - but with significantly less precipitation than average, Californians should expect water conservation to be more frequent as the years go on.
