Climate Data Projections

Temperature

  • The model ensemble’s estimate of warming under the highest emission pathway (RCP8.5) is an average temperature increase of around 2°C by 2050 and 5°C by 2090.
  • The model ensemble’s estimate of warming under the lowest emission pathway (RCP2.6) is an average temperature increase of around 1.4°C by 2050 and 1.4°C by 2090.
  • Under all scenarios except for the lowest emission pathway (RCP 2.6) the number of summer days is expected to increase and the number of frost and ice days are expected to fall dramatically by the end of the century

Precipitation

  • Great uncertainty remains around future changes in average annual precipitation, none of the model ensemble predictions are statistically significant and the estimated ranges are large.
  • Most models predict an increase in the intensity and frequency of extreme precipitation events
