Abstract

This chapter summarizes the current understanding about how and why specific weather and climate extremes are expected to change in the Southwest with climate warming over the course of the current century. Summertime heat waves and wintertime cold snaps are among the extremes most directly affected by climate change as well as the ones with the greatest impacts.
