Finding it hard to believe that this was one year ago today... The last skill I learnt in my PhD was how to use a spiral binder, and I did it very wrong the first time -- which pretty much sums up doing a PhD, really.

Worrying! Latest ECMWF seasonal model forecast favours below normal rainfall in Southern Britain right through the Autumn - here are the probabilities (%) of below normal precip for the next 4 months

If media downplay heatwave dangers, and climate change, people die. The recent UK extreme heat had frighteningly naive reporting, trolling, shaming, and clear parallels with Leonardo DiCaprio. Dr Eunice Lo & I discuss the evidence in The BMJ bmj.com/content/378/bm…

Albany, NY has officially reached 99 degrees. This makes today only one of 11 days on record (1938-present) to have a high temperature of 99 or higher in Albany, NY.

The last 99F day was 21 July 2011.
The last 100F day was 3 Sept 1953 - nearly 70 years ago!

The UK (well England really) is reasonably resilient from a drinking water perspective to single season drought due to existing infrastructure & aquifer reserves.

The real risk is one covering 2 summers with little winter recharge.

Watch out when that happens!

Persistence of dry seasons will determine whether we get dry to wet 'see-saws' or multi-year droughts. Spring/autumn rainfall are crucial for river flows.

Our HESS Journal paper showed how continued dry conditions in 2012 could have broken drought records doi.org/10.5194/hess-2…
