UVM researchers say the next 25 years could include more precipitation, that's both rain and snow in the Green Mountain state.

The university's Gund Institute released the nation's first ever state climate assessment.

"I think we're taking a leadership role on climate change, so instead of passively sitting back and watching it happen to us, we're starting to think how we can increase our resilience on climate change and as I said earlier, how we can grow with the climate, a changing climate," Research Assistant Professor at UVM Gillian Galford, Ph.D., said.
