Document Description

Quarterly Climate Impacts and Outlook for the Canadian and U.S. Prairies and High Plains for March–May 2024, with an outlook for July–September 2024. Dated June 2024. 

Spring brought contrasting temperatures to the Prairies and High Plains, with colder conditions in the western regions, including the southeastern corner of Montana and extending into the Dakotas, while parts of the eastern region saw warmer than normal temperatures. The majority of the Prairie provinces saw much wetter than normal conditions. Meanwhile, the eastern Dakotas and Minnesota saw slightly above-normal amounts. In contrast, drier than normal conditions were observed across much of the High Plains region, west-central Alberta, and the southeastern corner of Saskatchewan.

Environment and Climate Change Canada, NOAA, 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 U.S. Drought Portal
