As of March 1 California went from 34% drought into 48% in just one week! Federal scientists reported Thursday, as recent rains weren’t enough to significantly slow a drying trend that has been growing more serious all winter. Overall 30% of California is classified as abnormally dry. The only parts of the state that have experienced anything close to normal rainfall this winter are in San Diego and parts of the Mojave Desert.
