A static weather pattern will be maintained in August. The movement of the air masses is what dominates the weather of the northern hemisphere. While warm masses form in the tropics, cool ones form near the arctic. They meet in the mid-latitudes of Asia, Europe, and North America. Where they clash, the polar jet stream emerges to create and steer low- and high-pressure systems. This summer, the jet will have a static pattern where the United States will be covered by high pressure, hence the drought. In August, it is expected to be warm and dry. Watch the video here.
