The below excerpt from the Sacramento Bee was sent to me from g-rob...Thank you Rich!
“The National Weather Service noted on its website today that since 1878 in Sacramento there have been 25 months of February with an inch or less of rain.
The following March in 23 of those 25 cases was wetter than usual. The average March precipitation following the dry months of February was 2.54 inches, forecasters stated.
The biggest recent turn around from dry February to drenched March occurred in 1995. That year, Sacramento received only .19 of an inch of rain in February – followed by 7.84 inches of rain in March.”
