Hi,

as we all know, due to higher temperatures more water evaporates from the ocean and lakes. The additional water vapor comes down and produces more rainfall.
But when there is more precipitation, how is it possible that droughts are becoming more intensive?

Can someone explain this? :/

Seattle, Wa. is an example of this I think. We have to ask itn. Only he knows the correct answer and if anyone says anything he will correct them.

It is not possible to determine the temperature of Earth's oceans. It is not possible to measure the temperature of the Earth. It is not possible to measure the precipitation on the entire Earth. It is not possible to measure the intensity of droughts on the Earth.

There is nothing to explain.

Seattle is not experiencing a drought. It's rains are a result of moist air from the sea typically arriving as weak warm fronts. There is no mountain in the way to force the air to rise and squeeze out the water.Those fronts often develop in the tropics just off Hawaii.

We call it the 'pineapple express'.

You missed it teacher / corrector / itn. The drought in the southwest has lasted for almost 2 decades while Seattle is setting records for rainfall. But you are right because we have to accept what you say.

Seattle is not setting records for rainfall any more than usual.

The American southwest is a desert. Haven't you noticed?
