According to the March 16 U.S. Drought Monitor, 90.6% of California and 100% of Nevada are in drought. The winter wet season is almost over, and there's little chance for snowpack to reach normal levels. Worse, this is the second year in a row with below-normal snowpack. This webinar discussed current conditions and outlooks, as well as an overview of California and Nevada rangeland conditions.
The California-Nevada Drought Early Warning System (CA-NV DEWS) March 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).
