January’s atmospheric river storms brought rainfall five times the average for the month to date in much of the Bay Area.
For this point in the water year — which starts in October — the totals are around twice the average at many Bay Area spots. November was drier than normal, and December brought about double the average rainfall.
The totals below are from Dec. 1 to Jan. 16 at National Weather Service stations.
The site of the greatest reading, Uvas Canyon, is at 1,100 feet elevation near the Casa Loma fire station, about 2 miles east of Loma Prieta.
To the south, Mining Ridge, at 3,288 feet elevation in Big Sur, has recorded 84.16 inches from Dec. 1 to this week.
