Weather and Climate is a brand new series that explores what causes our weather - why the world's weather is constantly changing, why different countries have different weather patterns, how meteorologists forecast weather and the effect the weather has on our lives. Weather Patterns looks at the many different climates of the world, from deserts to the polar regions, and from temperate zones to the tropics. It describes how the pattern of weather in a place affects the vegetation, animal life, agriculture and the lifestyles of the people who live there

Extreme weather includes unexpected, unusual, unpredictable, severe, or unseasonal weather; weather at the extremes of the historical distribution-the range that has been seen in the past.

Extreme weather includes unexpected, unusual, unpredictable, severe, or unseasonal weather; weather at the extremes of the historical distribution-the range that has been seen in the past. Often, extreme events are based on a location's recorded weather history and defined as lying in the most unusual ten percent. In recent years some extreme weather events have been attributed to human-induced global warming, with studies indicating an increasing threat from extreme weather in the future.

Some extreme weather and climate events have increased in recent decades, and new and stronger evidence .

Some extreme weather and climate events have increased in recent decades, and new and stronger evidence confirms that some of these increases are related to human activities. Explore extreme weather. As the world has warmed, that warming has triggered many other changes to the Earth’s climate. Changes in extreme weather and climate events, such as heat waves and droughts, are the primary way that most people experience climate change.

Weather and climate extremes might propel adaptation both to a stable climate and its characteristic extremes, as well as to underlying changes, if they reveal vulnerabilities, cause damage, and make slow change more noticeable. In theory, extremes act as focusing events that overcome barriers to adaptation and accelerate policy responses. This pace-making might be attenuated by uncertainty in interpreting trends, and extremes might also miscue decision makers, perhaps pointing in the wrong direction or evoking over-adaptation.

Hurricanes, tornadoes, droughts, floods, or freezing tempereature – extreme weather – is when something in weather is abnormal and usually causes casualties. It can endanger people's lives or damage their crops or property. The weather at anytime can be described by temperature, wind speed, atmospheric pressure, and precipitation (rain, hail, or snow). The average temperature of the world is about 59ºF (15ºC), but some places are much colder than this, other places much warmer.
