Summary
Abstract: Precipitation is notoriously variable in California. View a map displaying the projected precipitation for each decade from 1950-2099 using a variety of climate models and scenarios. On average, the projections show little change in total annual precipitation in California. Furthermore, among several models, precipitation projections do not show a consistent trend during the next century.
