Tuesday, 24 January 2017: 8:30 AM
Ballroom 6E (Washington State Convention Center )
Klaus Wolter, CIRES/Univ. of Colorado, Boulder, CO

This talk gives an overview of significant large-scale weather and climate anomalies in 2016, with a discussion of the resultant seasonal temperature and precipitation anomalies around the Globe.  Weather and climate events include severe drought conditions, heat waves, wildfires, major tropical cyclones and extratropical storms, flooding rains, snow storms, sea ice conditions, as well as cold waves. Where possible, these are related to the ENSO conditions of last year, as well as to expected impacts due to anthropogenic climate change.
