California drought patterns becoming more common
Atmospheric scientists have found that California's highest temperatures are almost always associated with blocking ridges, regions of high atmospheric pressure than can disrupt wind patterns -- including one known as the Ridiculously Resilient Ridge. The Triple R, as it's called, is also linked with California's drought.
