As climate has warmed over recent years, a new pattern of more frequent and more intense weather events has unfolded across the globe.

Warming increases the likelihood of extremely hot days and nights, favors increased atmospheric moisture that may result in more frequent heavy rainfall and snowfall, and leads to evaporation that can exacerbate droughts.
