Drought Webinar Series

Please join us for our monthly Colorado climate and drought update webinars. Current conditions around Colorado will be presented, including precipitation, temperature, snowpack, soils, streams, and reservoirs. An outlook will also be presented. Following the presentation of conditions, we will discuss the current drought depiction over the state and open the floor for discussion. Presentation of conditions and outlook generally lasts 35 minutes, and open discussion is about 15 minutes. These meetings will be recorded and shared.
