Geophysicist: Wyoming’s Warm Winter Is Nothing New

Listen to the Interview

Federal hydrologists predict below average runoff this year due to a lack of snow this winter… and estimate that the states runoff will be at about 81 percent of average. This winter has definitely felt warm, so I spoke with Bryan Shuman - associate professor at the University of Wyoming in geology and physics. He tells Tristan Ahtone that the first two weeks of this winter have been unusually warm, but consistent with a 50 year trend he’s been studying.
