FEBRUARY 19 HI 1931 SlrTlN UPPER AIR IS CAUSE OF END OF DROUGHT Long Stagnant Atmosphere , ; Stirred Early in r" February. WASHINGTON, Feb. 19. un- The long- stagnant atmosphere wnic-n brot drought to the countrv nave stirred. That apparently i why it is raining once more. Science has found no cause fo . the almost complete lack of motion of the upper air, to which it attrib uted the drought that had devastat =d wide stretches of farming land Furthermore, there is no way o knowing, today said J. B. Kincer agricultural meteorologist of th- weather bureau, whether the re sumption of currents is permanen or will again lapse. Conditions Changed. A readjustment of air pressuri conditions in early February per mitted the air to flow from high to .Jow pressure areas in norma fashion. The low pressure areas .swung across the country and in re cent days have been attended by -substantial and sometimes heavy rains over much of the hitherto persistently dry areas. Before that tima a .high pressure area, hovering in tolerably long over the Rocky {mountain area, blocked off the raina which should have come to the in teripr of the continent. Since the first of February rain fall has totaled an inch or more in ' nearly all of the southern states ant over a wide belt extending from ex treme southern New York, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia southwest and west to Oklahoma and t eastern Kansas. Much of this area however,, there was a great deficiency to be made up. Remained Moderate. In. Maryland, Virginia, and the Carolinas, rain has remained moderate and generally below normal In the plains states north of Kansas and also in the upper Mississippi valley from northern Missour northward there has been little rain or snow as y'et. The heaviest rainfall has occurrci in Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas southern Missouri, the northern parts of Mississippi and Louisiana and eastern Texas. These were the states of the mosl severe drought areas. In. West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, and the southern half of Illinois, also hard hit raina have been mostly from one Inch to two inches.
