The changing climate is expected to make Connecticut a different place with more extreme weather, hotter summers and more precipitation, disrupting the natural world around us and testing our ability to respond and adapt.

Some changes will be volatile and abrupt, while others will be more nuanced.

At the end of this century, Connecticut’s summer heat is expected to feel more like the sticky, dog days of Washington, D.C., or, perhaps Savannah.
