The water levels at lake Mead seem to have turned a corner in 2023.

They are now higher than they were at this time in late spring in 2022, and are now at almost 1054 feet

Are things starting to look up for the drought at lake Mead?

In the past 5 years, the water levels declined a lot through spring, but this year have increased a lot in spring.

Take a look at the charts here:

Is this a good sign or what?

Only thing that will change, is easing water restrictions. Least, until water levels start to drop, as usual... Sure, they had a good year so far, but it never last. The dry season begins, the wildfire, the race to save homes and businesses... Never ending cycle, since nobody wants to pay to manage resource, or change their lifestyle.

You pay for federal government every time you pay taxes. They oversee the Colorado river agreements.

Wildfire in California start mostly because of arson. There are more homes and business located in brushy areas too, and they no longer cut back the brush. California also has destroyed much of it's water capacity by destroying dams.

Wildfire in California is the fault of the SDTC.

Depends on who you ask.

There are those that figure the extra water means 'disaster' (even though the drought means 'disaster'). Some are just never satisfied.

Snow levels are definitely higher. L.A. got a large amount of rain during that time too. I was caught in those snowstorms while in Nevada. Closed passes in Indio and in Kingman, and several blocked roads throughout Nevada, including SR95.

Yellowstone got quite a bit of flooding too. Wrecked up several roads in that area as well. They're STILL putting the pieces back together on that one!

All this means more water flowing down the Grand and Colorado river systems.

Lake Mead was low not only because of overuse of water upstream, but also because Hoover dam was still spilling water to run it's hydroelectric system...demanded mostly by California.

Downstream of THAT dam water levels were normal and never did drop.

It has been cold this year in NorCal. I've been seeing record lows in the Bay Area in recent days. Must be the Sudden Stratospheric Warming at the North Pole was stronger than usual, this year, pushing down that cold air further.
