Snow Hands

How much snow was there? It was about THIS deep....
The National Centers for Environmental Prediction, Climate Prediction Center, and National Weather Service currently predict that, "there is a greater than 90% chance that El NiƱo will continue through Northern Hemisphere winter 2015-16, and around an 80% chance it will last into early spring 2016". This is good news for California. A wet winter could bring a greater snow pack in the Sierra Nevadas which results in a greater spring thaw helping to ease the drought.
