Understanding how climate impacts weather on the local level is an essential ability for any meteorologist or climatologist. That’s why the National Weather Service developed the Local Climate Analysis Tool (LCAT)—a Web-based tool that helps you link local weather and water events to signals in the climate system, understand how global climate change contributes to local climate trends, and explore how climate variability contributes to local impacts. The video below outlines the benefits and functionality of the LCAT.
