Winter Outlook Workshop in Irvine, Dec. 8:
Register to join us Thursday, Dec. 8, for our Winter Outlook Workshop in Irvine. The past three-year span, 2019 to 2022, has officially been the driest ever statewide going back to 1895 when modern records began in California.
With La Niña conditions predicted to persist into this winter, what can reliably be said about the prospects for Water Year 2023? Does La Niña really mean anything for California or is it all washed up as a predictor in this new reality of climate whiplash, and has any of this affected our reliance on historical patterns to forecast California’s water supply?
The event is ideal for anyone involved in managing water resources or simply interested in the topic. It covers what is and isn’t known about forecasting winter precipitation weeks to months ahead, the skill of present forecasts and ongoing research to develop predictive ability. Register here!
