Winter Weather Records

Main Street, Susanville, January 1938.

Lately, I have received inquiries how this winter’s precipitation figures compares with previous wetter than normal years. Of course, it is still too early, since a lot can happen in February and March. The winter of 1937-38 witnessed some of heaviest snowfalls. It was also one of the wettest on record with nearly 40 inches of precipitation! The spring runoff was tremendous and filled Honey Lake for the first time in twenty years. In certain ways, Honey Lake is a good indicator as to what occurs from one winter to the next.

By spring time, I will provide more, especially to see what we experience in the short term.  Stay tuned.
