The level typically ‘bottoms out’ at the beginning of December, and gradually climbs through the first half of the year, usually peaking in June, after the snow pack melts.

Last year at this time, the lake stood at 34% of capacity, as the rainy season didn’t really kick in until January.

The Central Sierra snow pack stands at 94% of average, and more rain and snow is predicted over the next week.

It’s all nice to see, after an unseasonably warm November.
