Forecasters say Western drought to persist through December

by Bill Gabbert, Wildfire Today |

Most of the West and 95 percent of California are in drought. In Southern California drought conditions are predicted to further develop into the winter and persist across the rest of the state.

The western two-thirds of the United States is expected to have lower-than-normal precipitation the rest of December. All of the country will likely be warmer than normal during the period, except for the Southeast and portions of the Northwest.
