Climate projections for the Hudson Valley

The projections include air temperature, precipitation, heat wave, sea level rise and flood projections from now through year 2100, in the Hudson River region. The projections are taken from Responding to Climate Change in New York State CimAID Report written in 2011 and updated in 2014. You can download a PDF version of these projections. New York State officially adopted sea-level rise projections in 2017 for consideration in future planning, permitting and funding programs.

The report delineates climate projections by region. This fact sheet includes the two Hudson Valley regions: Region 2 (west of the Hudson River) and Region 5 (east of the Hudson River and the Mohawk River region). Region 2 covers Delaware, Greene, Orange, Schoharie, Sullivan, Rockland, and Ulster counties, and Region 5 covers Albany, Columbia, Dutchess, Fulton, Herkimer, Madison, Montgomery, Oneida, Putnam, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, Washington, and Westchester counties.
