About Special Reports
These reports provide an in-depth look at a specific topic, such as winter climate patterns, drought, and major weather events. For instance, the Winter Climate Patterns and Outlook report for the Northeast features an overview of typical La Niña weather patterns, other factors that influence weather patterns, the winter outlook, and a comparison of previous La Niña winters. The Drought Assessment explains how drought developed in the Northeast in 2016, identifies drought-related information gaps and needs, and includes recommendations to improve drought early warning.
