Document Description

Quarterly Climate Impacts and Outlook for Alaska and Northwestern Canada for March–May 2022, with an outlook for July–September 2022. Dated June 2022. 

The current snowpack in the Yukon is largely unprecedented, with many sites close to meeting or exceeding their historical monthly records. The higher than normal snowpack and cool spring temperatures may contribute to flooding. This will be especially true if warmer than average temperatures occur in the early summer and lead to rapid melt.

NOAA’s Regional Climate Services Program and partners created these climate outlooks to inform the public about recent climate impacts within their respective regions. Each regional report contains easy-to-understand language, and anyone can access them through the Drought Portal
