CLIMATE CRASHING EXTREME WEATHER

The Fun is Just Getting Started...

More wet and dry weather extremes projected with global warming,
Rutgers University, October 4,2018.

MAIN POINTS

Wetter & Drier
“Global warming is projected to spawn more extreme wet and dry weather around the world...”

Where
“...more frequent dry spells in the northwestern, central and southern United States and in Mexico, and more frequent heavy rainfall events in south Asia, the Indochinese Peninsula and southern China.“

Why
“…subtropical stationary waves in northern summers...”

Where
“...composed of persistent high-pressure systems over the North Pacific and North Atlantic and persistent low-pressure systems over Eurasia and North America”

“The high-pressure systems provide persistent conditions for dry weather, while the low-pressure systems fuel wet weather.”

More Coming
“The intensity of subtropical stationary waves during northern summers increased from 1979 to 2013, and projections suggest the increase will accelerate as climate warms.”

For Example
“…catastrophic floods in South Asia during the 2017 monsoon season...”

“…severe drought afflicted Texas in 2011, with direct agricultural losses estimated at $5.2 billion...”
