According to the October 12, 2021 U.S. Drought Monitor, 91% of the Pacific Northwest Drought Early Warning System (DEWS) is in drought. Conditions have improved a bit and more precipitation may be coming. But, almost 23% of the region is still in Exceptional Drought (D4). This webinar will feature recent and current conditions, outlooks, as well as presentations on "The Importance of Warm Habitat to the Growth Regime of Coldwater Fishes" and the "Climate Toolbox Historical Drought Stripes Tool."
These webinars provide the region's stakeholders and interested parties with timely information on current and developing drought conditions, as well as climatic events like El Nio and La Nia. Speakers will also discuss the impacts of these conditions on things such as wildfires, floods, disruption to water supply and ecosystems, as well as impacts to affected industries like agriculture, tourism, and public health.
