Klos, Timothy, Abatzoglou via Geophysical Review Letter

The current and future extent of the strongly rain-dominated (blue), strongly snow-dominated (white), and rain-snow mix (pink to red) areas within the western U.S. based on wet-day mean temperature. Future extents are based upon the RCP8.5 scenario using a 20-model global climate model (GCM) mean. (ΔT ranging from ~1.5 to ~4°C spatially).
