A Warming World - Climate Change Impacts on New England Winters

  • Warmer winter temperatures that impact the snow sports industry, invasive species, and the fishing industry
  • Stronger storms that will cause coastal flooding events similar to what we had this winter
  • More moisture that brings the increased threat of pluvial (surface water) and fluvial (river) flooding
