Quarterly Climate Impacts and Outlook for Alaska and Northwestern Canada for December 2019 – February 2020; outlook for March – May 2020. Dated March 2020.
The winter period, December 2019 to February 2020, was colder than normal in almost all of Alaska and most of central and northern
Yukon and Northwest Territories. This past winter was the first normally cold Yukon winter in the last few years.
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.
