Pacific Northwest Water Year Impacts Assessment,


“The fourth Pacific Northwest Water Year Impacts Assessment summarizes variations in temperature, precipitation, and snowpack across Oregon, Washington, and Idaho in 2023. Additionally, it details the impacts of these variations on key sectors such as agriculture and drinking water and how sectors responded to these impacts. For the first time, a summary of the assessment is also available in Spanish.

The assessment is one product of a collaborative process between water managers and scientists at the Office of the Washington State Climatologist, the Climate Impacts Group, Oregon Climate Service, the Idaho Department of Water Resources, and NOAA’s National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS). The collaborative process helps inform and refine future drought management by connecting seasonal conditions to sector-specific impacts and response actions.” Read more about the annual assessment here.
