Default What Weather?

Here in the NW,we can't even find a cloud.
Evidently,global warming is transforming the entire
West coast climate into what was once only the SW desert.
The 6th straight summer drought rolls on(zero rainfall in '03) and
there hasn't been a snowstorm up here since 1995.Forest fires rage on
longer than ever and water shortages are inevitable.
Just think,if only one degree increase in ocean temp.over the last
century can bring this much change,what could even a half degree
increase in the next few decades engender?
Is economic disaster on the horizon?

Well, you did elect George W. Bush....so economic disaster is what you're
headed for.

For the record, at any one time roughly 4% of the US is in drought, as
measured by the Palmer Index. Since currently there is less that 4%, I'd
suggest that you're simply unfortunate.

Looks like more than 4% to me.

Where in the NW are you? We've had a little rain, though definitely
less than normal, here in the Seattle area this summer.

Thank you, Hillary.

Looks like 30% plus.
Not to worry, the US can import more food from AUS{when we get out of
drought of course}.

In a related vein, this was posted on the NASA "Earth Observatory"
last week; the animations are pretty interesting.

In mid-month, you can see a strong weather front increase the
soil moisture content starting in Minnesota and moving all the way to
West Virginia.

Drought is officially any precipitation falling to 30% of average
down to zero.In the last 53 months,only 12 have registered avg.or
above avg. rainfall in this Willamette Valley of OR.Not only
that,there is an increasing number of drought months in the
year,usually June through October.
This September is following true to form as records are set for
consecutive 70+ and 80+days as well as for aridity.
If this is global warming induced,then it will continue and the
potential crisis that no one seems aware of or cares about will
ensue."
