Another drought predicted ST. PAUL, Minn. <AP)- One of Minnesota's top weathermen says the Midwest can expect another drought "sooner or later," but he says he could not predict with certainty when it will occur. Ear! Kuehnast, state climatologist, said Tuesday that droughts have come in 20 to 25 year patterns since the 1880s. "I don't think there's any doubt we'll have a drought sooner or later ... as far as dating it. I have shown there is a cycle," Kuehnast said. Dr. John R. Borchert, professor of geography at the Univer- isty of Minnesota, agreed that there appears to be cyclical patterns, but declined to predict whether a 1930s style drought is in the offing. "It seems perfectly obvious that major droughts are rhyth- mic but no one Knows why," Borchert said. Kuehnast said limited weather data in the last century make it hard to develop a long-range pattern. He said the only data before about 1870 came from military outposts. "We really only have four to go on," he said, citing known droughts in the Midwest plains in the 1880s, in 1910, in the 1930s and in 1955. —THt WEATHER May Weather 1973-74 -•19;]- -m»- Max V.'n Pep May Max V. n Per 46 40 .15 1 79 39 T 60 38 .08 2 61 39 T 65 31 03 53 26 0 68 34 0 4 60 29 0 75 44 71 45 76 40 T 5 57 36 0 6 61 31 0 7 52 45 .03 ••rrrM'i 11 riTM»»»»run i»1» BIVB rmmrn»111 > • i»n»11 m i n»a »j iitMiititiiimttiin •;;.. .«««« niii.mi; On Mother's Day...
