Thanks Kiril, that looks like what I was after. Too bad it's not specifically San Luis and above.

WHAT!!!! Tuolumne county isn't on the sample daily report!!!! WTF?

I'm not finding it on any of the reports! Seriously, our rain fall and snow pack affect the state significantly (Meaning this county IS important for irrigation).

OMG Kern county is on the list...jeezzzz.

Well it is primarily for Agriculture .... not much Ag in your area I suspect.

How about stations in Stanislaus County?

I can pull a report for you if you don't want to register.

I MIGHT register...without Tuolumne. I did run a report for El Dorado and it was really informative.

"The California Irrigation Management Information System (CIMIS) is a program in the Office of Water Use Efficiency (OWUE), California Department of Water Resources (DWR) that manages a network of over 120 automated weather stations in the state of California. CIMIS was developed in 1982 by the California Department of Water Resource and the University of California at Davis to assist Californiaís irrigators manage their water resources efficiently. Efficient use of water resources benefits Californians by saving water, energy, and money."

It would still seem that Tuolumne county rain fall would influence the "water resources" of California. I assume these are state owned stations? BTW Shasta has a station.

Thanks for the link. I know I am ranting, but looks like some great data. Didn't want to seem unappreciative.

Yea .. the distribution is weird. Most of the stations are situated in the valleys, with a few outliers. I suspect those would be more for research than anything.

Now if you want river data, that is a different "boat".

I know I already insinuated this, but it would seem that the valley would want to know precipitation rates in the sierras. Sure ET rates aren't so crucial (for the valley to know our ET rates that is, I still would like them).

With respect to irrigation scheduling in the valley it doesn't matter what happens in the Sierras.

Speaking of the Sierras, I saw a news report that said water allocations from the state this year for agriculture will only be at 15% of normal. Ya think that is going to cause some problems heh?

Nothing like a dead of summer heat wave to effect your crop. How can someone irrigate at 15%?
