NCAR economist Jeff Lazo describes the impact of routine weather events such as rain and cooler-than-average days on gross domestic product, or GDP, in the United States. That impact, as much as $485 billion a year, could be lessened with attention to both forecasting and the vulnerability of people and infrastructure.

This research, by Lazo and colleagues at the University of Colorado Boulder, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and Stratus Consulting, is published in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society.
