[WARNING to ALL plagiarizers, intellectual property thieves, copycat bloggers and unscrupulous “weather experts”: Do NOT plug the above forecast into your climate models or work your way backwards to make additional deductions like before …]

  • More than 67 percent of the US Midwest, about 69 percent of the South and 70 percent of the Southeast were abnormally dry or in drought conditions (D0 – D4), as of January 29, 2013.
