NOAA unveils an expanded and enhanced Climate Explorer

An expanded and redesigned version of NOAA’s online, open-source Climate Explorer tool has been released to improve support for local planners, policy leaders, and facility and resource managers. The tool gives people a way to explore conditions projected for their locations in the coming decades. Some of the highlights of the tool include: (1) mobile- 2 friendly options, allowing tablet and smartphone users to check future climate projections for their locations, (2) new maps to show projections of annual averages for diverse temperature and precipitation variables, as well as the four monthly averages used to represent each season, and (3) maps for all temperature variables, so users can compare maps of historical and projected conditions across seasons and decades (from 1950-2100).
