2021 PA Climate Impact Assessment Report

As with previous Impacts Assessments, the 2021 Climate Change Impacts Assessment projects that every county will continue to get warmer and wetter, with average annual rainfall increasing 8 percent, particularly in winter and spring, while average annual temperature rises approximately 5.9° F by mid-century from the baseline period (1971-2000). In addition to updating climate projections for the Commonwealth, the 2021 Climate Impacts Assessment takes a risk-based approach to analyzing the consequences of climate hazards across different sectors. This approach allows us to prioritize climate adaptation actions to the sectors facing the most severe consequences of climate change.
