Quarterly Climate Impacts and Outlook for Alaska and Northwestern Canada for September – November 2019; outlook for January – March 2020. Dated December 2019.
Autumn 2019 began with drought or abnormal dryness in southern Alaska, stretching from the Alaska Peninsula in the west to the Panhandle in the east. Repeated autumn storms brought a range of near normal to much above normal precipitation to southwest and south central Alaska.
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 at https://www.drought.gov/drought/resources/reports.
