Houston Climate Impact Assessment 2.0 Understanding Houston’s Past and Future Climate and What it Means for You
City of Houston (2021). Houston Climate Impact Assessment 2.0: Understanding Houston’s Past and Future Climate and What it Means for You.
This assessment report helped identify how future temperature and precipitation is expected to change in the greater Houston area through 2100. Specific indicators were used to assess the impacts, including the estimated likelihood and frequency of high intensity events (e.g., droughts, heavy rainfall, and heat waves), in addition to more chronic stressors (e.g., the annual average temperature, and number of hot days with temperatures above 100 degrees Fahrenheit).
