What happened in 1989. I wasn't born yet.

Here in the foothills the native Live Oak leaves are browning and dropping from lack of water when they are normally putting on winter growth. The persistent high pressure and dry conditions have set up inversion weather in the Central Valley with warm air lofting over the cold foggy valley. Stockton and a other weather stations have had record cold mornings. At the same time at 1900 feet elevation I've had almost no frost, a low of only 30deg F, hedychiums and cannas are still growing, and musa basjoo is a little yellow but growing. Day time temps have been 55 to 70 deg F and Trachycarpus and others are growing strong. At lower elevations warm daytime temps have tricked the deciduous Blue Oak into breaking bud and putting on new leaves almost a month and a half early. This despite dry soils and fire warnings. Problem now is if rainfall is to catch up to normal it will have to rain like crazy with the troubles of a long soggy spring. But if precipitation is dry to moderate then we've got a drought. Troubles either way. Urban users and irrigated agriculture should be alright with reservoir water from last year's snowpack. However, low soil moisture creates dieback and deadwood in the native woodlands. Could be a rough fire season.
