Southwest Climate Outlook (SWCO)

Project Dates

The Southwest Climate Outlook (SWCO) sum­marizes climate and weather information from disparate sources in nonscientific language, providing more than 1,500 people with timely climate-related information. Since SWCO's inception in 2002, stemming from the END InSight project, the publication has evolved into a tool for two-way communication with stakeholders and a platform for responding to needs throughout the region. The SWCO audience is very diverse, including people in the water sector, farmers, ranchers, research scientists, and interested citizens, among others.
