  1. That high probably occupies a third of the country plus now it's building north . In your years is this very common. The humidity at 40% is very high for us here in Sacramento. Thank you. So my question have you seen this happen often.

  2. This is a very strong high pressure ridge. They are not common but if they do occur it will be during the late summer and early fall.
