Western Region Climate Services

NCEI's Western Region Climate Services provide the data, tools, and information to help organizations, decision makers, and the general public address and mitigate the effects of climate variability and change. The Western United States is one of the most climate-sensitive areas in the nation. Scarce water resources, wildfires, and rising sea levels are a few major examples of the challenges that communities are responding to throughout the region.

These syntheses discuss the major climate events during the past three months and contain historical seasonal assessments as well as climate predictions and projections.
