More than 80 percent of California is stuck in extreme or worse drought, thanks to a weather pattern reminiscent of one of North America’s worst droughts.

According to the latest Drought Monitor report, drought conditions were unchanged in California for the last week, and the probability of dry conditions in the state over the next 10 days is high.

But how bad is it in 2014, really? A new study suggests it is just a small fry compared to 1934.

The American Geophysical Union announced a new study, detailing research that concluded the 1934 drought was the most intense and far-reaching drought of the last 1,000 years. The researchers also noted something interesting – the same atmospheric pattern of a high pressure ridge over the West Coast that deflected away storms last year was also present in the area during the winter of 1933-1934.
