Since Fall 2006, CLIMAS has provided online, interactive seasonal climate briefings and podcasts for the Southwest and northern Mexico. The briefings have provided an interactive supplement to the monthly Southwest Climate Outlook, including an up-to-date summary of seasonal hydroclimate conditions and forecasts. Stakeholders can ask questions about climate information and receive answers immediately. In 2008 and 2009, regional National Weather Service offices became active partners in the briefings, presenting analyses of recent conditions and forecasts. These briefings also generated news articles in local newspapers and radio shows.
