Fifth National Climate Assessment - Read the Report

A seasonal climate and health forecasting tool for heat

The CDC’s Heat and Health Tracker, developed in collaboration with NOAA and its NWS, provides local heat and health information to help communities prepare for and respond to extreme heat events. This includes monthly and future projections of the expected number of days that are at or above a dangerous level of heat based on climatological norms. The Heat and Health Tracker also includes a Heat-Related Illness and Temperature map of the rate of emergency department visits associated with heat-related illness per 100,000 visits by region.
