NOAA NCEI State Climate Summaries Available | 5.30.2017

Following the release of the Third U.S. National Climate Assessment in 2014, demand grew for state-specific climate summary documents. In response, NOAA’s National Center for Environmental Information (NCEI, formerly NCDC), in conjunction with input from state climatologists and other climate experts, produced summaries that cover historical climate conditions and future climate scenarios based on well-established sources. The documents also showcase some unique climate information for each state. For example, storm surge and sea level rise are discussed in the Louisiana document and winter storms are covered in Tennessee’s. Each state’s summary can be downloaded for free at StateClimateSummaries.globalchange.gov. The summaries for each of the six SCIPP states are available at the following links:

Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Tennessee, Mississippi
