New Year May Bring Wet Weather

(Sacramento, CA)
Tuesday, December 20, 2011

Jim Matthews is a meteorologist with the National Weather service. He says that seems to be what's happening now. And Matthews says if past La Ninas are any indication, we could be in for wet weather soon.

"If it starts out wet and then turns dry there is some indication, some probability, that there's a chance of above average precipitation during the January/February months. That's usually what has happened. That doesn't necessarily mean that it'll happen this year but that's what the statistics more or less show if you look at past La Ninas."  

Matthews says the Sacramento area got more than 10-inches of rain last February and March alone.

Matthews says the reason we're not getting any rain or snow now is because there's a high-pressure system off-shore. The system is deflecting any storms coming from the north…storms that  could be bringing us rain.
