According to the January 19 U.S. Drought Monitor, 95% of California and 99.7% of Nevada are in drought. We're at a crossroads where remaining winter snowfall is going to be crucial for the region. Unfortunately, much of the Sierra Nevada is currently below normal for snow water equivalent. This webinar will provide an overview of the current conditions and outlook for the rest of winter as well as an overview of the new Drought.gov website.
The California-Nevada Drought Early Warning System (CA-NV DEWS) January 2021 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).
