Recent storms have state water managers optimistic about California's water supply.
The rain has replenished many of the state's low reservoirs and the snowpack is almost 150% of normal for this time of year.
Maury Roos, chief hydrologist at the California Department of Water Resources said, "It looks very good. We know we've got at least a partial supply already in the bank, either in reservoir storage or in snowpack. However, it still depends on the remainder of the season, and about two-thirds of the wet season is still left."
Snowpack runoff normally provides California with about a third of its water supply.
