As has been noted pretty much everywhere recently, February was dry, dry, and more dry in much of California and Nevada. January wasn't much better. While most reservoirs are still in good shape from last year's wetter weather, impacts from the current dryness will most likely still be felt in other areas, such as agriculture, ranching, and wildfire risks. This webinar will provide an overview of the current conditions and outlook for spring as well as drought impacts on ranching.
The California-Nevada Drought Early Warning System (CA-NV DEWS) March 2020 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).
