Arctic may switch from snow to rain-dominated as early as 2060

Summary by Ground News
New climate models reveal faster and larger increases in Arctic precipitation than previously projected. Reduced snow cover will further exacerbate Arctic and global warming through albedo feedbacks, increased winter carbon dioxide fluxes, methane releases from soil, and thawing permafrost. More rain-than-snow events can be devastating to wild caribou and reindeer populations.
