Daniel Swain in The Daily Mail: California suffers its driest February in 150 YEARS which is causing droughts, wildfires and means there will be no superbloom this year

San Francisco and most of the northern state have received just sprinkles to no rain in what is usually its wettest month of the year. Daniel Swain, a climate scientist at UCLA’s Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, said: ‘This hasn’t happened in 150 years or more. There have even been a couple of wildfires – which is definitely not something you typically hear about in the middle of winter.’
