Soggy summers in Europe and the UK are heavily influenced by the track of Atlantic storms

One of the strongest El Niño events ever recorded has placed the lives of 26.5 million children at risk of malnutrition, water shortages and disease in ten countries in Eastern and Southern Africa,

Sydney has just shivered through its coolest June day in 21 years although the worst of the cold spell is probably over for now.

High precipitation quantiles tend to rise with air temperature, following the so-called Clausius–Clapeyron scaling. This CC-scaling relation breaks down, or even reverts, for very high temperatures. In our study, we verify this reversal using a 60-year period of summer data in Germany. One of the suggested meteorological explanations is limited moisture supply, but our findings indicate that this behavior could also originate from simple undersampling.

Continuous measurements of atmospheric methane (CH4) mole fractions measured by NOAA's Global Greenhouse Gas Reference Network in Barrow, AK (BRW), show strong enhancements above background values when winds come from the land sector from July to December from 1986 to 2015, indicating that emissions from arctic tundra continue through autumn and into early winter.

Carbon dioxide level in South Pole crosses 400 ppm for the first time in four million years: study

Atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) is for the first time expected to exceed 400 parts per million for 2016 as a result of an extra boost from El Nino, finds a new study.

Japan's weather bureau said on Friday there was a high possibility that a La Nina weather pattern would emerge during the country's summer, which runs from around June to August, and continue throu

The Indian summer monsoon rainfall had a threedecade long alternate dry and wet epochs during about 150 years from 1840 to 1989. The dry epochs resulted in frequent drought monsoons affecting agriculture, power generation and the overall economy of the country. A high percentage of severe cyclones in the Bay of Bengal moved northwards during the dry epochs causing disasters in Bangladesh, Myanmar and the Indian States of Odisha and West Bengal.
