Climate. Xxxxx Power Station is situated in a summer rainfall area with an average annual precipitation of about 750 mm falling almost entirely during the months of October to April. The average rainfall per month generally exceeds 40 mm during this period, although drought periods do occur which can last for 20 days or longer. Drought periods occur most frequently during the months of October/November and March/April. January is statistically the highest rainfall month with an average monthly rainfall of about 130 mm. June has the lowest rainfall with an average monthly rainfall of about 7 mm. Approximately 85% of the annual rainfall occurs in the summer months and heavy falls of 125 to 150 mm occasionally occur in a single day. The annual average number of thunderstorms is about 75. These storms are often violent with severe lightning and strong (but short-lived) gusty winds and are sometimes accompanied by hail. This region has among the highest hail frequencies in South Africa; about 4 to 7 occurrences (depending mainly on altitude) may be expected annually. January is normally the hottest month with an average daily maximum temperature of 27°C with a mean daily temperature in winter being about 16°C. Winter average daily temperatures vary from 18, 5°C maximum to -1°C minimum. The extreme temperatures recorded range from 34, 7°C to minus 12, 4°C for the period 1920 - 1984. (Source: Weather Bureau, Pretoria) Winds are generally light to moderate except during thunderstorms. Generally the prevailing wind directions are from the North West during the day and from the east at night. During daytime, the prevailing winds are from the north-western direction. During night-time, the prevailing winds are from the north-eastern direction. The highest recorded average wind speed is 17, 6 km/hour. The average wind velocity over the year is 14, 5 km/hour.
Climate. Ecological consequences of climate change to amphibians may include changes in population dynamics, timing of reproduction, changing geographic range, and broader community and ecosystem level changes (Xxxxxx et al. 2001, XxXxxxx 2001, Xxxxx and Xxxxxxxxx 2003, Xxxxxx et al. 2004, Corn 2005, Parmesan 2006, Xxxxx and Olden 2008, Xxxxxx et al. 2010). In contrast, XxXxxxxxx and Maxell (2010) found that decreasing winter severity associated with warmer, drier xxxxxxx increased the population viability of Columbia spotted frogs in a high elevation wilderness area in Montana (Northern DPS). The climate change related impacts to Columbia spotted frogs within Nevada are not known with certainty. Predicted outcomes of climate change imply that negative impacts will occur through increased stream temperatures, decreased stream flow, changes in the hydrograph, and increased frequency of extreme events (Xxxxxxx et al. 2005, Xxxxx et al. 2007, Xxxxx et al. 2008, Xxxx et al. 2008, Kaushal et al. 2010). Water temperatures have increased and are predicted to continue to increase in the future; however, impacts from rising water temperature are not known for Columbia spotted frogs. Rising stream temperatures may allow non-native species to expand their current ranges into Columbia spotted frog occupied habitat (Xxxxx et al. 2008). Reductions in streamflow are predicted to have a negative impact on Columbia spotted frog populations because of the fragmented nature of populations, the small size of most populations, and the close association of recruitment and survival to the amount of water available. Degraded aquatic systems exhibit greatly reduced resiliency to accommodate natural disturbances such as floods, fire, and drought, thereby exacerbating the effects of those events, which may further reduce the persistence of these populations (Xxxxxx et al. 2006). The Nevada Natural Heritage Program, in association with the Nevada Wildlife Action Plan (WAP) revision (Wildlife Action Plan Team 2012), conducted a climate change vulnerability assessment of all WAP Species of Conservation Priority (SOCP), including the Columbia spotted frog. NatureServe’s Climate Change Vulnerability Index (CCVI) was used to conduct the relative vulnerability to climate change of more than 358 species (Wildlife Action Plan Team 2012, Xxxxx 2012). The CCVI uses a scoring system that integrates a species’ predicted exposure (direct and indirect) to climate change within the assessment area (i.e., th...

Climate. KIC and the Locations
Climate. Climate of the Lower Florida Keys is characterized as Tropical-Maritime. The highest temperature on record was 97 degrees and the lowest 41. The southern latitude and maritime influences contribute to minimal seasonal variation in temperatures with average annual highs of 81 degrees and lows of 72 degrees and average winter temperatures that are about 16 degrees lower than in summer. Differences in daily highs and lows average 10 degrees. The Florida Keys experience the highest level of solar radiation in the State of Florida. During spring (April), the sun shines 84% of the possible sunlight hours. There are no records of snow, sleet, or ice from the Florida Keys. Rainfall is seasonal with wet periods extending from May through October. There are two peaks in rainfall, the first in June and the second in September-October. Annual precipitation totals about 39 inches with 80 percent of this falling from May to October. The Florida Keys are within an area with high probability for tropical storms (39-74 mph winds) and hurricanes (greater than 74 mph winds). There is a one in seven chance of a hurricane striking the Keys in any given year. Prevailing winds are from the east, varying from due east in fall to east-southeast in spring and summer. Wind speeds average 10 to 12 mph (Monroe County Environmental Education Task Force 1991).

Climate. KIC may without notice set off any liability of Community Member to Climate-KIC against liability of Climate-KIC to Community Member whether or not liability arises under this Agreement whether either liability is present or future, liquidated or unliquidated and whether or not either liability arises under this Agreement.
Climate. The climate of the Lower Florida Keys is tropical (Jordan 1991) with a mean annual temperature of about 25 degrees C. The coldest average monthly temperature, 20.5 degrees C, occurs during January and the warmest mean monthly temperature, 28.8 degrees C, occurs in August (Xxxxxx 1974). Temperatures below 4 degrees C are unusual due to the moderating effects of the Florida current. Freezing temperatures and frost have never been recorded. The mean annual rainfall is 99.1 cm, of which 80 percent falls from May through October (Xxxxxx 1980).
