Virtual weather and climate office hours by Dr. Daniel Swain: 03/06/2023 edition
The latest in a recurring series of live, virtual “office hours” hosted by Dr. Daniel Swain (@WeatherWest) on various topics related to extreme weather, climate change, and Earth system dynamics. I’ll be answering questions solicited live via the chat function during each of these events. Although the focus of each virtual office hour will vary, the link will remain the same. See you at the next one!
03/06/2023 topic: Discussion of recent extreme snow accumulations in both northern and southern California mountains. Also, discussion of rising odds of a warm atmospheric river storm later this week in Northern California, why this forecast is so complicated, and early thoughts on potential impacts.
