Outlooks for additional localities in Maryland and Virginia are currently under development.

Work on this product is led by Benjamin Watson (ben.watson@psu.edu), with additional help from Matthew Lisk, Katerina Kostadinova, Molly Mitchell, and Robert Nicholas. Pamela Braff formulated the original concept and developed initial prototypes.

Production and distribution of the Outlooks is supported by NOAA through the Chesapeake Bay Coastal Climate Extension pilot program (grant NA18OAR4310302) and the Mid-Atlantic Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments program (MARISA) (cooperative agreement NA16OAR4310179). Additional support is provided by the Center for Coastal Resources Management (CCRM) at the Virginia Institute of Marine Sciences and by the Penn State Center for Climate Risk Management (CLIMA).
