Daniel Swain in SF Gate, High-pressure ridge settled along coast keeping California dry

Daniel Swain is a UCLA climate scientist, studying the physics, dynamics, and impacts of the Earth’s changing climate system.

In this SF Gate article, Swain talks about the high pressure ridge in the Bay Area.

“Nearly every winter tends to feature at least one weeks-long dry interlude,” says Daniel Swain, “The real question is whether the upcoming dry spell persists for more than a couple of weeks. That’s when we’d start falling behind average once again from a precipitation and water supply perspective.”
