In the notable 2016-17 water year, when the city reported a total of 15.95 inches of precipitation, Reno experienced a cool and wet October followed by a warm and dry November. Then, the region was “slammed” with storms in January and February that brought 9 inches of precipitation, according to the Weather Service.
