Although many people in the Bay Area tend to equate the months of November to April as the “rainy seasons” for the area, the State of California official defines a rain year from July 1 to June 30 of the following year.
Although the 2018-2019 rainy season seemed like it was an abnormal year for rain in the Bay Area, with the State officially declaring the drought over in January, compared to previous years this rainy season was actually quite normal-despite the fact the region still had significant rain into April.
Either way, with the massive amounts of snow in the mountains AND the hills of the Bay Area, all the waterfalls in the National and State parks will be glorious to view once the winter melt begins.
Although “El Nino” never dies, it does go into hibernation. And we can’t wait to if it “wakes up” for the 2019-2020 rainy season.
We hope to have our "El Nino" movie posted at a later date.
