Kansans can expect rising temperatures and more extreme flooding in the future, according to the latest National Climate Assessment.

Kansas has always experienced severe weather events. But as average temperatures rise, due in part to heat-trapping pollution released from fossil fuels, these severe weather events are predicted to become more extreme.

That means periods of drought will be more severe, while storms will be more intense and lead to greater flooding.
