The February Twin Ports Climate Conversation (TPCC) will feature a presentation by Pete Boulay, assistant state climatologist, Minnesota State Climate Office. Pete will lead us through a look at Minnesota's past weather, trends, and some considerations of what the future may hold for Minnesota winter.

Minnesota and winter may sometimes seem synonymous. The words "Minnesota winter" may conjure images of tremendous blizzards with deep snow and long, cold nights, or wonderland fun of skiing, ice fishing, and snowmobiling. Some of us wish to escape the cold and ice, while many others embrace the beauty and abundance of all seasons. Whatever your perspective, weather affects everyone. Please join us for this opportunity to take a closer look at observations and trends of Minnesota winters.

TPCC is a monthly opportunity for community dialogue about questions of climate change. TPCC covers different topics monthly, focusing on perspectives of climate change impacts, adaptation responses, and opportunities for mitigation and resilience. Join the conversation.
