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.

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.
