Death Valley Superbloom Unlikely

 Death Valley National Park reports

What’s the possibility of another superbloom??
The results are in… and it’s not looking good. Last year’s superbloom was a once-in-a-decade event at best by trends (last were ’98, ’05, ’16). We also have received 13% (.23 inches) of the precipitation that we did last year (1.76 inches) in the same amount of time (October-January). It is likely that the seed bank that took at least a decade to build was exhausted last year.
