Quarterly Climate Impacts and Outlook for the Western Region for December 2018 – February 2019. Dated March 2019.
Persistent stormy conditions helped to maintain near-to-below normal temperatures across much of the West this winter. Abundant precipitation and moderate temperatures helped alleviate drought conditions in large areas of the West.
NOAA’s Regional Climate Services Program 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.
