According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, temperatures are expected to rise between 2.5 and 10 degrees Fahrenheit over the next century.

Impact-based forecasting and warning services aim to bridge the gap between producers and users of warning information by connecting and increasing synergies between the components of effective early warning systems. We tested qualitatively whether a warning message based on colour codes is understandable and useful to trigger risk mitigation actions at the local level in the flood-exposed communities of Rajapur and Ghorjan unions in Sirajganj district, Bangladesh.

A new study identifies a method for predicting the likelihood of damaging hailstorms in the United States—up to three weeks in advance.

Local solutions can help beat climate change, a veteran farmer has proposed.

In this paper, satellite-based precipitation, clouds with infrared (IR) brightness temperature (BT), and tropical cyclone (TC) data from 2000 to 2015 are used to explore the relationship between precipitation, convective cloud, and TC intensity change in the Western North Pacific Ocean. An IR BT of 208 K was chosen as a threshold for deep convection based on different diurnal cycles of IR BT.

NEW DELHI: The mercury again fell to 4.2 degrees Celsius on Tuesday — three notches below normal. This was the capital's joint coldest day of the season.

NEW DELHI: It was another cold morning in the capital on Monday with mercury recorded at 5 degrees Celsius — two notches below average for the season.

ALLAHABAD: On the second day in continuation, Allahabad received ample sunshine all day through but the bright sunshine was ineffective against the prevailing 'galan' (cold breeze).

Mobile technologies could help to improve service delivery to smallholder farmers, but whether such services are fulfilling their potential remains poorly understood. To address this gap, this article presents an exploratory literature review regarding the impact of mobile phone-enabled services on farmers in developing countries. The review highlights a dearth of empirical evidence in this area. Findings suggest that farmers benefited through improvements in production planning, management of weather-related risks, and greater ease in receiving money.

Time series analysis and statistical significance of trends in rainfall data was carried out using standard Mann-Kendall test statistics. The non-parametric Mann-Kendall (M-K) statistical rank test, which is widely used in climate research, was employed in this study to find out fluctuations and presence of trend in time series data of rainfall at a single station, as well as regional averages.
