Wintertime is often drizzle time in the Pacific Northwest. The region may need to get used to more intense rain as well.
Climate change will bring rain in more intense bursts across most of the country. That's according to a new study from the National Center for Atmospheric Research.
The extreme rainfall would come in the summer in much of the country. Here, we'd get it mostly in the winter.
With a warmer climate, the storms known as Pineapple Expresses would carry more moisture our way from the tropical Pacific.
