Unlike traditional weather forecasts, which consist of weather maps that predict exactly how much rain may fall or the daily maximum temperature of an area, NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center outlooks offer users forecasts of future weather conditions relative to what's normal for their region. With timescales ranging from weeks to years, the outlooks help promote effective management of climate risk and form a climate-resilient society.
The video below provides a virtual tour of the Climate Prediction Center’s outlook tools.

Developed by NOAA’s National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) program, the U.S. Drought Portal offers access to maps, data, and expert assessments through easy-to-use tools designed to help decision makers monitor, plan for, and recover from water shortages.
The video below provides a virtual tour of the tools available at the Drought Portal, with extra emphasis on the portal’s most widely used product—the U.S. Drought Monitor.
