According to the January 17 U.S. Drought Monitor, 95.4% of California-Nevada is in drought. But as a series of atmospheric rivers drenched the region, the immediate threat turned to flooding. But what does that mean for the drought? This webinar provided an overview of the current conditions and outlooks, a demonstration of the WestWide Drought Tracker, and perspectives on the current drought from the California and Nevada state climatologists.
The California-Nevada Drought Early Warning System January 2023 Drought & Climate Outlook Webinar is part of a series of regular drought and climate outlook webinars designed to provide stakeholders and other interested parties in the region with timely information on current drought status and impacts, as well as a preview of current and developing climatic events (i.e., El Niño and La Niña).
