More information.
Will drought come back to California and Nevada this winter? December is typically the beginning of wetter winter conditions in California and Nevada, but dry winters are not uncommon for the region. This creates a fair amount of uncertainty, which makes tracking precipitation and potential drought impacts through the winter crucial for future planning. This webinar will provide an overview of current conditions and outlooks for winter, and special guest speakers will share a toolbox of partner tools that can help track dry or wet progress through winter. Co-hosted by NIDIS and CNAP (a NOAA RISA team), this webinar will feature speakers from the CNAP, the Center for Western Weather and Water Extremes (CW3E), and the National Weather Service.
The California-Nevada Drought Early Warning System (CA-NV DEWS) November 2018 Drought & Climate Outlook Webinar is part of a series of regular drought and climate outlooks webinars designed to provide the region's stakeholders and interested parties with timely information on current and developing drought conditions as well as climatic events like El Niño and La Niña. This webinar will take place on Monday, November 26th, 2018 at 11:00 am PT/2:00 pm ET
