Yosemite Daily Photo, Yosemite Fern Spring is no longer flowing 1/25/15

Yosemite Fern Spring is no longer flowing! 1/25/15

The first photo show Yosemite Fern Spring on 1/17/14 and there was some flow over the rock wall. The next to photos are of Fern Sping on 1/25/15 and the water is no longer flowing over the rocks. The only way water is getting over is by the wicking effect of the moss.

Interesting though is that the Merced River at Happy Isles is flowing at about 25 CFS. and at about 1.5' height where as on the same day last year it flowing at 8 CFS and the height was .75'.

El Capitan and a very dry Horsetail Fall 1/21/15

Horsetail Fall is on the far right of El Capitan and is normally flowing really good right now but as you can see there is barely any water coming over. You will also notice the absence of snow on top of El Capitan, normally it is covered in deep snow.

The Horsetail Fall Firefall event that takes place in Mid Feburary is not looking good, although they weather can quickly change up here and we get dumped on.

Yosemite Daily Photo, Yosemite Drought Forecast, not looking good

A new year, a new ridge: dry and warm conditions return to California, but how does the present pattern compare to last year’s?

Recent Weather Summary Weather conditions over the past two months have varied wildly throughout California.Extremely heavy precipitation and unusually warm conditions in early December in the northern/central coastal regions gave way to very cold and mostly dry conditions around the new year (though not dry enough to preclude some remarkable low elevation snowfall in the lower hills of Southern California)
