2021 Winter Package
This year’s Winter Package looks at local and national trends in winter average temperatures and winter days above normal since 1970.
Four key points to highlight when discussing climate change and the winter season in the U.S.:
- The winter season isn’t as cold as it used to be 50 years ago.
- Since 1970, winter is the fastest-warming season for the majority of the U.S.
- There can still be cold winters under climate change.
- Warming winters can have negative impacts on our health and regional economies.
