Abstract

Both the analysis of longer rainfall records and the newly emerging ways of interpreting extra-tropical cyclone activity point to the need to think about longer term oscillations in dominant weather patterns and how these oscillations might respond to greenhouse gas-induced climate change. The bias in the rainfall records to the last 50 years is undermining the ability to identify meaningful scales of variability, and this is where new analyses, based upon the analysis of the drivers of mid-latitude precipitation, offer much scope. As with the climate change hypothesis, the possibility that the summer 2007 events are a normal but unusual happening cannot yet be dismissed
