Alex Guthrie, California, Craig Miller discussed on Morning Edition


This summer air monitoring systems will be deployed to pinpoint the worst sources of pollution, and then this fall enforcement and regulatory activities will round up this time next year. More communities will be added to the program the funds largely come from the states cap and trade program for the California report, I'm Leslie mcclurg, we're gonna head to Lake Tahoe. Now where skiers and snowboarders are reveling in the fresh powder. The recent snowfall has left behind take it from eleven year old Alex Guthrie who just got back from the slopes is your was very good compared to years past because of climate change. There hasn't been that much snow for the last few years, but this year was really nice skied for about four hours. I did not wipe out. But my dad did so Alex is clearly loving it. But the scientists have something else on their minds. They wonder does this mean California will. Have enough water comes spring. Here's Craig Miller. It's looking more like it. When surveyors check the snowpack this morning, they're likely to find its water content. Clocking in at just about average for this point in the winter. Well average is good news given the state of things a month ago. We can really make a lot of ground. If we just have a couple of heavy hitting storms. Ben hatchet is a climate scientist at the desert research institute in Reno. And we sure did and it was the people rejoiced at the ski resorts, and hopefully at the the water management and other agencies, and it appears that January kind of put us over the hump for the season with the snowpack. Now at about sixty percent of what they'd hoped for in April. When it's typically at its peak and begins to melt, meanwhile, a cold front right behind the storm. That's sweeping in tomorrow should improve the picture even more for the California report. I'm Craig Miller. Let's go to Orange County now where the only needle exchange program spoiling an appeal to resume operations cake, Michelle Wiley has. This. Hart park in the city.
