Scenic landscape in North Dakota

The Northern Plains Drought Update & Outlook Tribal Webinar was held on Thursday, December 2, 2021 at 1 p.m. MST/ 2 p.m. CST. This webinar provided a current overview of drought conditions in the Northern Great Plains, as well as an outlook on what to expect this winter and going into the spring. The webinar also included a discussion of the Mesonet station program run by South Dakota State University and opportunities to gather the best available data on tribal lands.

This webinar was organized in partnership with NOAA’s National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS), the North Central Climate Adaptation Science Center (North Central CASC), NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) Regional Climate Services, and the USDA Northern Plains Climate Hub. NOAA, USDA, and the North Central CASC partnered to host this drought webinar series throughout the summer and fall to provide resources to tribal resource managers in the Northern Plains. Our goal is to provide relevant information on the drought and its impacts to assist with near and long term preparation and planning.
