SEPTEMBER 2014 AMERICAN METEOROLOGICAL SOCIETY | precipitation amount is only the 18th highest of the analogue time series, showing that even if the atmospheric conditions were favorable to wet conditions over Southern Europe, they do not fully explain the exceptional character of the precipitation anomaly. We conjecture that a potential amplifying cause could be that the oceanic air masses carried by regimes of westerly winds were moister than usual due to warmer SSTs in the Northeast Atlantic…

Validation of a Rapid Attribution of the May/June 2016 Flood-Inducing Precipitation in France to Climate Change
The extreme precipitation that resulted in historic flooding in central-northern France began 26 May 2016 and was linked to a large cutoff low. The floods caused some casualties and over a billion
Rapid attribution of the May/June 2016 flood-inducing precipitation in France and Germany to climate change
Abstract. The extreme precipitation that would result in historic flooding across areas of northeastern France and southern Germany began on May 26th when a large cut-off low spurred the development
Unusual past dry and wet rainy seasons over Southern Africa and South America from a climate perspective
Southern Africa and Southern South America have experienced recent extremes in dry and wet rainy seasons which have caused severe socio-economic damages. Selected past extreme events are here
Contribution of Moisture from Mediterranean Sea to Extreme Precipitation Events over Danube River Basin
In the most recent decades, central Europe and the Danube River Basin area have been affected by an increase in the frequency and intensity of extreme daily rainfall, which has resulted in the more
Climate change increases the probability of heavy rains in Northern England/Southern Scotland like those of storm Desmond - a real-time event attribution revisited.
On 4–6 December 2015, storm Desmond caused very heavy rainfall in Northern England and Southern Scotland which led to widespread flooding. A week after the event we provided an initial assessment of
Human influence has intensified extreme precipitation in North America
TLDR
It is established that anthropogenic climate change has contributed to the intensification of continental and regional extreme precipitation and will lead to more frequent and intense precipitation extremes in North America in the future.
Climate change increases the probability of heavy rains like those of storm Desmond in the UK – an event attribution study in near-real time
Abstract. On 4–6 December 2015, the storm "Desmond" caused very heavy rainfall in northern England and Scotland, which led to widespread flooding. Here we provide an initial assessment of the
The role of anthropogenic warming in 2015 central european heat waves
Summer 2015 in Europe. The summer 2015 in Europe was highly unusual, as persistent heat and dryness prevailed in large parts of the continent. In central and eastern Europe, a combination of
Perspectives on the causes of exceptionally low 2015 snowpack in the western United States
Augmenting previous papers about the exceptional 2011-15 California drought, we offer new perspectives on the ‘snow drought’ that extended into Oregon in 2014 and Washington in 2015. Over 80% of
Attributing the 2017 Bangladesh floods from meteorological and hydrological perspectives
Abstract. In August 2017 Bangladesh faced one of its worst river flooding events in recent history. This paper presents, for the first time, an attribution of this precipitation-induced flooding to
