Because weather is such an important topic to so many places on the whole Earth, I’ll add what I see with regards to different areas.
Australia has been going through a tremendous drought. I still see 2.5 more years of drought happening, but after those 2.5 years, the drought will diminish step by step from then on. So, in 2018, I see the drought taking the other turn and begin the process of lessening. While 2 more years of drought is a problem, I do see its end. Australia is going into its Summer temperatures right now and this year will see some rain associated with at least 1 major storm. Look for the storm to not hit Australia directly. This means there won’t be a lot of rain, but there will be some.
I see a general direction of the same weather patterns which Europe has had for the last 4 years. I don’t see a lot of fluctuation or dramatic changes. Climate Change is real and the weather patterns of the last 4-5 years are to be considered the new normal. The nearest time period I see any dramatic change will be 2018 when I see Europe having an extremely mild winter with 2019 being the pendulum swinging back the other way. This is far off in the future, but gives the indication that the weather patterns Europe has had recently are going to continue.
As a whole, expect lots of rain over the next 18-24 months. More than what has been “normal” in decades past.
This is one area where the dramatic weather extremes are going to be felt less. I’m still seeing some extreme weather – with regards to higher than average temperatures, but not beating up the area, like is happening in Australia. I see the extremes in weather being related to temperatures rather than being extreme storms. I see a severe mosquito (swarming) problem coming for South Africa – worse that before. This is related to the weather somewhat.
As a whole, the Climate change effect for India’s weather will be a longer rainy season. While I see the level of intensity of the storms will be near the same level as compared to decades past, the length of the rain season will be longer and come earlier. This does mean that there will be significant flooding in cities as well as rural areas. India will face some disasters related to flooding. Disease and insects will become a problem because of the flooding. Clean drinking water will be part of the challenge for people during the floods, and this should not be a surprise.
