Rocky Mountains–High Plains Climate Dashboard

A collaboration between Western Water Assessment, the North Central Climate Science Center, and the USDA Northern Plains Regional Climate Hub

The Rocky Mountain–High Plains (RM-HP) Climate Dashboard provides an array of images for climate, drought, agricultural conditions, and water-supply monitoring that are automatically updated when the original providers update them on their respective websites. The RM-HP Dashboard is focused on eight states: Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Kansas. The RM-HP Dashboard is based on the WWA Intermountain West Climate Dashboard.
