Hot off the press, literally minutes ago.

Government Report Finds Drastic Impact of Climate Change on U.S.
By LISA FRIEDMAN - AUG. 7, 2017

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/07/climate/climate-change-drastic-warming-trump.html

... The report was completed this year and is a special science section of the National Climate Assessment, which is congressionally mandated every four years.
The National Academy of Sciences has signed off on the draft report
, and the authors are awaiting permission from the Trump administration to release it.

One government scientist who worked on the report, and who spoke to The New York Times on the condition of anonymity,
said he and others were concerned that it would be suppressed.

Oh, but lookie what happened, the document was leaked to the New York Times
Read the Draft of the Climate Change Report
A draft report by scientists from 13 federal agencies, which has not yet been made public but was obtained by The New York Times,
concludes that Americans are feeling the effects of climate change right now.

What has changed since the last report in 2014? 
The human fingerprint and attribution studies of extreme climate events has advanced rapidly in the last four years and all of it points at significant AGW influence on increasingly extreme weather events.

Though sadly I doubt they manage to make the simple down to Earth reality based statement: We live on a warmed up planet, there is no extreme weather event that can possibly be independent of the overall warming of Earth’s atmosphere, oceans, land and other related changes (deforestation, cryosphere melting, etc)
