New Video: Wisconsin's Changing Climate
Watch as Daniel Vimont, Science Council member and Co-Chair of the WICCI Climate Working Group, provides an overview of current and likely future climate change across the state.


Now available! WICCI scientists have created a mapping tool that answers the question: "What climates today are most similar to the projected future climate of my location?" Also known as climate analogs, these maps show you locations in the U.S. that currently resemble what the climate is projected to be like in Wisconsin in the future. Explore this new feature now.

WICCI climate scientists have "down-scaled" global climate models to project how Wisconsin's climate has been changing and how it might change in the years to come.

Click on the map to activate a slideshow of the recent results of the efforts to map climate change in Wisconsin.

If you would like to see a more extensive set of climate maps, visit the interactive mapping page. You may also download a pdf of the WICCI climate maps.

To learn more about the science and scientists involved in these efforts, visit the Climate Working Group page and the methods page.

You can also find answers to frequently asked questions about the modeling project.

These maps come from the Center for Climatic Research and the Center for Sustainability and the Global Environment, Nelson Institute, University of Wisconsin-Madison.
