Community Climate Charts

What’s happening with climate in your Northern community?

See temperature and precipitation projections 2010–2099 for over 3800 communities in Alaska and western Canada.

Look for key changes—for example, higher temperatures in spring and fall could mean a longer growing season and/or a shift from snow to rain. Warmer, drier spring weather may increase fire risk.

The tool also explains how different levels of greenhouse gas emissions create the various paths to future climates known as RCPs.
