Dr. Jeff Masters: Drought Will Cost $10 Billion This Year
You gotta love Weather Underground. There’s more data than Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica and Star Trek combined.
In his Weather Underground blog, Dr. Jeff Masters does not like how the growing season is setting up in the Plains and parts of the Midwest. In far northwest Iowa and far southeast Missouri, it would take nine inches of rain in a month to break the drought.
Plus, Punxsutawney Phil (the hedgehog) gets called out for “gross misrepresentation” by Ohio attorneys. The proposed penalty for predicting an early spring is severe, but justified.
