Summary
Abstract: The State of the Climate is a collection of periodic summaries recapping climate-related occurrences on both a global and national scale. The State of the Climate Monthly Overview - Global Hazards highlights significant weather-related hazards and disasters across the world. The reports focus on the following events: drought and wildfire, excessive temperatures, flooding, severe storms, tropical cyclones, extratropical cyclones, severe winter weather, polar events and sea ice, and ecosystem impacts. The information provided is a compilation of media news and other reports accompanied by relevant images, graphs, and documents. Material provided in this report is chosen subjectively and included at the discretion of the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). The ability to report on a given event is limited by the amount of information available to NCDC at the time of publication. Inclusion of a particular event does not constitute a greater importance in comparison with an event that has not been incorporated into the discussion. Following a summer season summary and an annual report issued in 1998, the Global Hazards report was issued monthly (from 1999) until the final report issued in March 2013. All previously issued reports will be maintained online.

Purpose: This State of the Climate report provides decision-makers at all levels of the public and private sectors with data and information on climate trends and variability each month, season, and year for the United States, including perspectives on how the climate of today compares to the past.

Use Constraints
How to cite: A suggested citation is provided at the bottom of each online report. Users should modify according to their writing style.

Please note that State of the Climate reports are based upon operational datasets. The official operational datasets chosen for the report can and do change over time. The nature of these changes can be evolutionary, such as addition of previously-missing data or changes due to quality-assurance algorithms. Changes may also be revolutionary, in that a new version of an operational dataset, or a different dataset altogether, are adopted for official use. In any of these cases, the values presented in the State of the Climate reports reflect those known at the time, using the official dataset at the time. Values are not updated or edited within past reports, unless otherwise noted, even if the underlying official dataset has since changed.
