Why has the weather in California been so hot lately? What is the cause?

    Weather occurs in the atmosphere (specifically, the lowest portion called the troposphere) and is governed by three factors–air pressure, air temperature, and humidity. Air masses that form over a region are “relatively uniform in temperature and humidity,” and hot, dry air masses are responsible for bringing heat waves. The temperature and humidity of an air mass can change as it moves from one region to another, so I’m guessing that this is what caused the sudden spike in temperatures in southern California. Now that the air mass is moving away, the temperatures are slowly dropping again.

    Recently climate changes have been attributed to global warming. Temperatures are increasing and decreasing in uncommon areas. In addition, there have been a lot of tornados, snow storms, and rain storms/flooding in uncommon areas.
