The last week of September, Western Norway saw the heaviest rainfall in 13 years. Such downpours will become more common in the future as global warming leads to more water in the atmosphere, climate scientists warn.
CICERO Center for International Climate Research is working to develop more reliable and informative seasonal forecasts. This could lead to huge savings for both energy traders and farmers, as well as for other weather-dependent industries.
The Norwegian Environment Agency has commissioned a report from CICERO and the Western Norway Research Institute which summarizes new knowledge on the impacts of climate change for Norway until 2100.
