New NOAA Climate Summaries for each state

Today NOAA released a set of new climate summaries for each state. Here is what their new website says:

The State Climate Summaries spell out recent local conditions for each state and provide insights about the state’s climate outlook based on historical trends. Climate is distinguished from daily weather because climate reflects a longer period of time and measures averages of weather conditions. The summaries, which are available both as web pages and downloadable PDFs ranging from four to six pages in length, describe historical temperature and precipitation conditions for each state and use several visual aids to show past observations and plausible future projections. 

Specifically, the summaries cover:

  • Historical climate variations and trends
  • Noteworthy extreme weather events
  • Future projections of climate conditions over the next century
  • Past and future conditions of sea level and coastal flooding, where applicable
