The following article, by reporter Paul Rogers of the San Jose California Mercury-News, has a good summary of the effect felt in California from the current extreme drought. The article also has some discussion about a long-term temperature feature in the north Pacific--a negative trend in the Pacific Decadal Oscillation, which may be a major factor in the drought's intensity. I have noted the negative PDO in long-term weather discussions both here and in presentations during the past couple years.--Bryce
