Precipitation anomaly Summary

Precipitation

August

Much of California and the southern half of Nevada should be wetter than normal however long term normal precipitation for the month is very low for the Central Valley. Mountainous areas have slightly greater rainfall than the month of July so the positive anomaly is a welcome outlook. Much of the coastal ranges of Oregon and Washington remain considerably drier than normal with much of the rest of both states being near normal to only slightly drier than normal.

September

Much of California and the southern half of Nevada should be wetter than normal however long term normal precipitation for the month is very low for the Central Valley. Mountainous areas have slightly greater rainfall than the month of August so the positive anomaly is a welcome outlook. Much of the coastal ranges of Oregon and Washington remain considerably drier than normal with much of the rest of both states being near normal to only slightly drier than normal.

October

Near normal throughout the region but slightly wetter than normal for nearly all of California and across southern Nevada while much of the rest of the state is should be close to normal for this historical month for the onset of the wetter season.
