Western coast of the USA and Canada is in December 2020 and will be until minimally mid-January too, heavily tested by extreme rainfall from extratropical cyclonic systems, with widespread floods and landslides.
A topic has become an impulse for wide discussion in climatological circles, after extreme landslide in British Columbia – scientists are saying, that increased temperature means extreme risk of floods and landslides in the region until the year 2100, because lot of water won´t be already saved into snowfall accumulations during the winter season.
Last month in Alaska and British Columbia was critical and the beginning of the third decade of December 2020 is marked by extreme strong, more than 3100 miles long atmospheric river shifting above Oregon, Washington state and Vancouver region, with expected exceptionally rainfall and floods in Northwest of the USA and southwest of British Columbia during Christmas time.
