ArabiaWeather.com- An American study, conducted by the University of Minnesota in collaboration with the Woods Hole Ocean Institute, attributed the worst weather conditions in California in 1,200 years to the record high temperatures and little precipitation during the three-year drought that struck California.

The study, which is scheduled to be published by the American Geophysical Union, says that the state has suffered from various periods of dry weather and lack of rain in the past few years, but scientists are looking at the cumulative effects of the record high temperatures and low precipitation, in addition to other factors that they say are all added to The worst weather conditions in more than a thousand years.

The researchers described the drought that California is currently experiencing, led by low precipitation, as severe and unprecedented in the context of the new millennium.

The researchers pointed out that although there are several factors that add to the worst climatic conditions in 120 years, there are six years during this period that were likely drier than 2014.
