Quarterly Climate Impacts and Outlook for the Chesapeake Bay Region for June – August 2019. Dated September 2019.
Temperature was above normal for much of the region throughout the summer months, and July ranked as one of the ten all-time warmest months on record for several locations. High intensity rainfall events occurred throughout the Chesapeake Bay watershed, resulting in two rare National Weather Service Flash Flood Emergencies.
NOAA’s Mid-Atlantic RISA Team (MARISA) created this outlook in partnership with NOAA’s Regional Climate Services Program 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.
