Precipitation data and high-resolution modeling suggest that extreme rainfall events under a changing climate will be shorter, more intense, and more widely spread out.
Cassini’s final flybys of Saturn’s largest moon may have captured a temperature drop due to rainfall, one of the first observations of weather changes on Titan.
Dew point temperature better explains precipitation change with warming than temperature itself, and the relation is more spatially coherent than previously thought.
Scientists call for joint efforts to combine real-time global rainfall data with high-resolution local hydrology to better forecast floods.
Scientists investigate whether warming temperatures and changing rainfall patterns could be triggering more landslides in mountainous areas.
Weather forecasting can greatly improve benefits of rainwater harvesting.
Passing storms dredge up colder ocean water, curbing evaporation and decreasing cloud coverage and rainfall for weeks, satellite data reveal.
Water levels in Africa’s largest lake have risen over a meter since last fall and continue to increase as land use changes and heavy rains enhance the flow.
A new mechanism explains changes in the probability distribution of tropical rainfall, which is not expected to change uniformly in a warming climate.
A new deep learning approach bridges ground rain gauge and radar data with spaceborne radar observations of Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission to improve precipitation estimation.
