No rain since May 26, but water levels are still high

A healthy Sierra snowpack and spring rain are providing plenty of water for agriculture and recreation this summer.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A hot weekend will get many of us thinking of getting relief at area lakes and rivers.

Late season snow in the Sierra Nevada mountains helped renew the spring and early summer runoff into these storage facilities, giving us plenty of water for the dry months.

Even though the snowmelt has dropped off, water temperatures remain cold.
