Dr. Seuss on Western Hydroclimate

Snow remains in the forecast and hopefully we'll have some white stuff this weekend for Alta's closing day #2, to help Snowbird extend their season, and perhaps to give us an extra week or so of white corn in the backcountry.  However, I have something more entertaining to share than a discussion of the weekend forecast.

Jeff Lukas is a research scientist with the Western Water Assessment.  He recently presented a Dr. Seuss inspired summary of recent and future climate and water trends for Colorado that has gone viral amongst my colleagues.  It's worth a 5 minute look and does an excellent job summarizing current knowledge of our changing hydroclimate.

Although emphasizing Colorado and the recently completed report, Climate Change in Colorado, it is quite applicable to Utah.
