Quarterly Climate Impacts and Outlook for Alaska and Northwestern Canada - September 2022
Quarterly Climate Impacts and Outlook for Alaska and Northwestern Canada for June–August 2022, with an outlook for October–December 2022. Dated September 2022.
The early part of the summer saw record dry conditions that led to numerous and extensive wildfires. The second half of the summer saw excessive rainfall in many parts of the state. Most Yukon watersheds saw record snowpack in this past winter. This was followed by a colder than average spring, which signaled increased potential for flooding during the spring snowmelt season.
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.
