Summary

The Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP) will host a webinar entitled "National Weather Service Alaska Climate Forecast Briefings, September 2016." The primary speaker will be Rick Thoman, National Weather Service Alaska Region.

Webinar Summary:

The tools and techniques for making monthly and season scale climate forecasts are rapidly changing, with the potential to provide useful forecasts at the month and longer range. Rick Thoman (Climate Science and Services Manager, Environmental and Scientific Services Division, National Weather Service Alaska Region) will review recent climate conditions around Alaska, review forecast tools and finish up with the Climate Prediction Center's forecast for the upcoming season.

Rick will also present a "Feature-of-the-Month" special addition in which each month he will highlight a topic relevant to the particular month.
