California Drought To Continue Despite Winter Rains

The drought is linked to the fact that 2014 is on course to be the warmest year on record, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center.

The forecast of a warm winter comes after a summer of record-breaking temperatures, as well as a late-season heat wave that made drought conditions worse and increased the rate of evapotranspiration, or the transfer of water from soil and other surfaces to the atmosphere by evaporation and by transpiration from plants.
