Dealing with Weather Patterns
“We have been dealing with this western ridge/eastern trough that has contributed to the drought in the West and also the cold winters and cool summers in the Midwest. This is a pattern we cannot seem to shake. Sometimes persistence is your best option, and right now, I think that’s your best forecast heading into spring and early summer.” —USDA meteorologist Brad Rippey. (March 25 broadcast)
