A Changing Environment
A few of the ways Climate Change impacts Minnesota:
WARMING WINTERS: Continued loss of cold extremes and dramatic warming of coldest conditions.
EXTREME RAINFALL: Continued increase in frequency and magnitude of extreme events; unprecedented flash-floods (Over the past 30 years, we have seen increased rainfall from April – June.*)
HEAT WAVES: More hot days with increases in severity, coverage and duration.
DROUGHT: More days between precipitation events, leading to increased drought severity, coverage and duration.
