It may feel like it’s been pretty cold and wet in the Bay Area recently, but California is parched and drought restrictions are incoming.

The State Water Board handed down drastic water supply notices this week, putting thousands of water users on notice that water draws may soon be cut off completely.

Data from the U.S drought monitor reveals that over 90% of California is suffering through a moderate drought or worse, and there isn’t a lot of help coming from the mountains, with the snow water content across the Sierra running at 60% to 75% percent of average.
