Abstract

Preliminary Conclusions • Non-climate factors can affect frequency/intensity of wind speeds • Low confidence in climate projections for wind speeds • Thunderstorms dominate DC extreme wind climate • Linking observations and large-scale parameters Needs for Adaptation • Development of flexible, non-stationary statistical models • Detailed upscaling, downscaling research • Embrace uncertainty - quantify and attribute ALL uncertainties • Identification of possible thresholds/tipping points.
