A Shift in European Summer Climate in the 1990s

Source: Walker Institute for Climate System Research, University of Reading (UK)

From Press Release:

North Atlantic warming in the 1990s coincided with a shift to wetter summers in the UK and northern Europe and hotter, drier summers around the Mediterranean. The patterns identified match those experienced during summer 2012, when the UK had the wettest summer in 100 years, while the Mediterranean suffered with temperatures as high as 40 degrees centigrade or more...

Many different factors can affect UK and European weather and the Atlantic is just one of those. However, the research does suggest that the Atlantic Ocean has played a part in the run of dismal UK sumers that we have experienced in recent years. The research suggests that the warming of the North Atlantic in the 1990s is increasing the chances of wetter summers for the UK, but the UK could still experience a warm, dry summer because of the many complex influences on our weather.
