After two dryer-than-average winters in Northern California, a third dry season would have noticeable impacts.

“If next year is dry, we expect that water agencies across the state will start asking their customers for voluntary conservation measures,” said Jeanine Jones, Interstate Resources Manager at the California Department of Water Resources, in a Tuesday conversation with FOX40.

November has so far failed to produce much measurable precipitation in Northern California.  But, as Jones pointed out, there is nothing unusual about a dry November.  With the traditionally wettest months still ahead, there is hope for a water rebound in 2014.
