California Rainfall Nearly Back To Normal In 2014

https://notalotofpeopleknowthat.wordpress.com/2015/01/12/california-rainfall-nearly-back-to-normal-in-2014/

By Paul Homewood Alarmists seem to have gone quiet about the drought in California lately. I wonder why? http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/cag/ Precipitation in 2014 was actually close to normal, ranking 44th driest since 1895. Note that the blue line is the trend, which is falling at a barely noticeable 0.02”/decade. The bionomial filter trend also shows many worse periods in the past. And before anybody says it is only because of the December floods, NOAA show that there have been 16 wetter Decembers. More important, though, is the longer term trend, as that is really what leads to seriously damaging droughts. A look at the 60-Month averages shows much more severe droughts in the 20thC. As with all droughts, it will take time for water reserves to build back up again. But it has done so before from much lower levels and there is no reason to suppose it won’t do again.
