The Snow Water Equivalents in the Sierra Nevada mountain range in California are abnormally low for this time of year, as can be seen in this image comparing 2013 to 2014. The Central Valley is experiencing Extreme Drought with no relief in sight, and NOAA’s Storm Prediction Center has labeled the greater Los Angeles area with a Critical Risk forecast due to strong winds and very dry conditions. This image compares January 13, 2013 and January 13, 2014 snow cover as seen by the Suomi NPP satellite’s VIIRS instrument
