Weather Patterns And Mars

—- NPR's Joe Palca reports that astronomers have new information about the weather patterns on Mars. They say depending on the planets distance from the sun, Mars is either windy, very dusty, and relatively warm...or very cloudy and extremely cold. The new information will give the two probes on their way to Mars a better chance at success.
