Much-needed precipitation is forecast for northern California.
But not the drought-hit central and southern parts of the state.
A lot of key American crops will remain impacted.
Expect higher prices at grocery stores, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Spawning salmon trying to travel dry waterways are affected, too.
