California's drought - its worst in decades - is likely to hold steady through the summer months and may not ease in the fall even with an anticipated El Niño weather pattern, a federal drought expert said on Friday.
The U.S. Climate Prediction Center raised the prospect that El Niño conditions could return after the Northern Hemisphere summer, causing adverse weather that could potentially disrupt the harvest of vital crops such a
