Globally, hot days are getting hotter and more frequent. Over the past decade, daily record temperatures have occurred twice as often as record lows across the continental U.S., with heat waves becoming more common and intense heatwaves more frequent in the western U.S. Forecasts also indicate that the warmest daily temperatures are expected to increase by at least 5°F with 20 to 30 more days over 90°F expected in most areas of the U.S. by mid-century. Join this session to learn more about the impacts of heat waves on grapevines and fruit development and potential management solutions for today and into the future.
