Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 31, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta British weather driest in years By ROD CURKIE 1.0NDON (CP) Many in Britain are anxiously watching the skies these days (or signs you ready for Traditionally the butt of jokes about its damp climate, Britain has just gone through driest winter in almost 40 years and the experts predict a drought unless rainfall increases during (lie summer. Maps published by the West German weather bureau in- dicate an extraordinarily dry in much of North Amer- ica and the Soviet Union as well. Other experts note (hat while Britain last year was having its coolest and driest summer in living memory, the Mediterra- nean countries wc-ve plagued by cyclones and heavy rain. Ear- lier, the winter wheat crop in Russia died in frozen ground because the traditional snow cover never arrived. The pro- growers Sheep call il quits HELENA, JZont. (API-Sixty per cent of the sheep growers in Montana's 19 largest sheep- producmg counties have gone out of business since I960, Hie Montana Livestock Department reports. The predator problem, lacl; of adequate help, weather con- ditions and disease were cited as the problems affecting the sheep industry, with predator control the major factor. LOW ELEVATION The highest elevation in south- ern Ontario is J.YOO feet above sea level. :ective came in time this year but later than usual. European weather scienlsts generally blame a vast high pressure area over the Arctic that has heen building for 10 years, resulting in a spreading cooling process. GOOD FOR TOURISTS Rainfall in Britain during February was down to 59 per cent of average and although tourists and those in the tourist industry are delighted by the sunny skies and promises of a bright summer, many experts warn of dire long-term con- sequences. For instance, in reference to Britain's cool summer last year, some experts have calcu- lated that an over-all average temperature drop of even one degree would'dramatically re duce agricultural yields and mean longer snow cover some areas. In the context of the energy shortage, they warn that fuel demand would in- crease notably. Although there is little or no public concern, some quarters are agitating for greater em- phasis on long-term weather forecasting. Two London newspapers have advocated government assist- ance for Britain's climatic re- search unit at the University of East Ajiglia, the only such unit in Europe. The university team notes that temperatures meas- ured since 1920 at the most northerly recording station on Franz Josef Island in the Arctic have dropped five centigrade degrees in the last 10 years. Some scientists have sug- gested that the solving of long- term weather mysteries should command as much financial support as the daily weather forecasts, on which the British government spends millions ev- ery year.
