Historic Areas Burned
Change in Max 1-Day Rainfall
2050s vs. Historic

This shows the change in Max 1-Day Rainfall for the 2050s vs the historic baseline.
Change in Cooling Degree Days
2050s vs. Historic

Cooling Degree Days (CDD) is the sum of daily average temperature in excess of 18° C over a season or year. For example, a day with an average temperature of 20° C would contribute 2 CDD to the annual or seasonal total. Generally speaking, a day with average temperature of 18° C or higher would experience daytime high temperatures that would require some cooling for buildings.
