CALIFORNIA - State water officials say January storms have pushed the Sierra Nevada snowpack to 100 percent of average to date.

The Department of Water Resources said the snowpack is already at 71 percent of average for the state's rainy season, which typically reaches its maximum by April 1. 

Winter snow provides drinking water for much of the state as it melts in warmer months and flows into reservoirs. 

Rain and snow have fallen across the state this week, and more wet storms are in the forecast.
