Nevada’s variable climate makes drought preparedness not only important but challenging. To effectively address some of the challenges faced in the drought planning process, the Nevada Division of Water Resources is collaborating with the Desert Research Institute (DRI), the Nevada State Climate Office, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) through the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) program to facilitate three virtual workshops aimed at improving drought planning, mitigation, and communication in Nevada. The workshops will encourage collaboration between stakeholder agencies at the federal, state, and community level to leverage resources and improve planning, mitigation, and outreach. Strengthening interagency collaboration will improve coordination of actions as well as minimize duplicate efforts, ultimately enhancing efficiencies and resources that benefit a diversity of water users across the state. By identifying needs for drought preparedness, stakeholder agencies can work together in determining the next steps needed to continue moving Nevada towards drought resiliency.

Long‐range water planning is complicated by factors that are rapidly changing in the 21st century, including climate, population, and water use. Climate projections indicate the latter half of the 21st century may be even drier in some parts of the United States than even the most arid centuries of the last 1,000 years that included megadroughts.

In this webinar, Texas State Climatologist Dr. John Nielsen-Gammon will discuss these drought projections and related climate factors for Texas, and some barriers to the use of these projections by Texas agricultural producers, large surface water suppliers, small groundwater management districts, and regional water planning districts.

Setting grazing plans and stocking rates can be especially challenging during a drought, such as the one currently afflicting much of the western United States. The Grassland Productivity Forecast tool, or Grass-Cast, can help provide insight into how the grass production through the summer will play out.

The Grass-Cast tool covers the Great Plains region and has recently expanded to include Arizona and New Mexico, two states dealing with moderate to extreme drought. Please join us as Brian Fuchs, Monitoring Coordinator with the National Drought Mitigation Center, and Dannele Peck, Director of the USDA Northern Plains Climate Hub, talk about the current drought conditions and what the Grass-Cast forecast tells us about the rest of summer.
