How much rain does California need to get to no longer be in a drought?

    Majority of California’s rainfall comes from storms moving across the Pacific Ocean. On average 75 percent of rainfall occurs between November and December. Typically a good year of rainfall for California would produce about 100 inches over the North Coast, 50 inches over the Northern Sierra, 18 inches in the Sacramento area and 15 inches in the Los Angeles area. Durng dry years, amount of rainfall can fall to almost to a third of those amounts. So in order for California to be no longer considered in a drought, it must meet those minimum amounts of rainfall on what is considered a good year of rainfall.
