Water Talks: Understanding Hydroclimatic Change in Minnesota
September 13 @ 7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
Join us Monday, September 13 at 7:00 pm for a free webinar with the Minnesota State Climatology Office’s Dr. Kenny Blumenfeld as he presents “Understanding Hydroclimatic Change in Minnesota.” This presentation breaks down Minnesota’s changing climate to its essential points, particularly emphasizing the ongoing changes in the quantity, timing, and intensity of precipitation, and the rapid rate of winter warming. We will also discuss other important elements of our climate that are not (yet) changing, and will peer into the future to see what lies ahead, according to the best available science.
