A special one-day workshop June 9 in Irvine will highlight some of the latest research on seasonal precipitation forecasting that could help water managers across the state plan better for what winter might bring. The workshop, Making Progress on Drought Management: Improvements in Seasonal Precipitation Forecasting, is sponsored by the California Department of Water Resources in partnership with the Water Education Foundation. Featured speakers include: Mike Anderson, DWR’s state climatologist discussing climate change implications for long-range forecasting; Alex Tardy, National Weather Service warning coordination meteorologist discussing short- and long-term forecasting; Mike DeFlorio, Scripps Institution of Oceanography’s Center for Western Weather and Water Extremes, discussing the skill of experimental season to sub-season forecasts. Bringing together research meteorologists and climate scientists, the event also will feature presentations on challenges in predicting California’s winter precipitation and experimental forecasting work for the Upper Colorado River Basin, which has been suffering through more than two decades of dry conditions. This special June 9 workshop will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Beckman Center in Irvine. The $79 registration includes refreshments, lunch and materials.
