California snowpack 202 percent of average for this time of year (Reports).

California water officials say the amount of snow blanketing the Sierra Nevada is even bigger than the 2017 snowpack that pulled the state out of a five-year drought. The Department of Water Resources says as of May 30 the Sierra snowpack measured 202% of average after a barrage of wet storms throughout winter and spring. The San Francisco Chronicle reports that at this time last year, it measured 6 percent of average – making this year’s 33 times bigger than 2018.
