While people have been enjoying this mild winter weather, the worries over drought conditions continues to grow.Tonight, there's new concern of a severe winter storm that's expected to cause some ruckus.
Mother nature hasn't been acting like herself lately. The lack of snow and rain has kept water levels below where they should be, that's causing concern of drought. A new storm is on the way and it packing a punch. Even with the predicted storm, forecasters say this will be the biggest storm of the winter season. It's still unclear if it would be enough to deal with unusually low water level. Immigrant lake is at only around 45% leaving lots of room for more water. Mount Ashland has also suffered from no snow.
So, how much water is enough and will we get it? Like all things with nature, we'll have to wait for its answer and it may take awhile.
