At a Glance
Temperature
Mean annual temperature is projected to increase.
                               by 2060   
                               by 2090

1.1 -3.0°C
1.5-5.0°C
Rainfall
Projections in annual rainfall are inconsistent
Extreme
'Hot' days and nights are projected to increase
Key Climate Changes
  • All projections indicate substantial increases in the frequency of days and nights that are considered ‘hot’ in the current climate. Annually, projections indicate that ‘hot’ days will occur more often.
  • Nights that are considered ‘hot’ for the annual climate of 1970-99 are projected to increase more quickly than hot days. Decreases in the frequency of days and nights that are considered ‘cold’ in current climate are projected, with these events becoming exceedingly rare by the 2090s.
  • Substantial changes in annual rainfall are not projected between June and October and monthly rainfall changes for November through May are inconsistent, with some models projecting increases and others projecting decreases, particularly in the periods from September-May.
  • All models consistently project increases in the proportion of rainfall that falls in heavy events in the annual average of up to 19% by the 2090s.

What does the chart show?

This chart shows how well the best available climate models capture the seasonal cycle of climate rainfall and/or temperature for the zone selected. The thick line of the historical period represents a proxy measure of actual historical climate that can then be used to compare the historical cycle captured by climate models.



***Caution***
This information takes the values of a 1 degree (~150 km2) climate models at the selected site and returns the average for the region. These numbers will vary depending on the site selected but should NOT be interpreted as climate for a specific point or location.
