Global wetting

It's just stopped raining here, but this is what it's looked like over the last hour or so... I guess it'll be a while before the water recedes.

An hour later: the rain has pretty much stopped and the water is starting to drain away...

  2. Eversley under 1½ feet of water and closed to traffic! Police plane overhead for last 20 mins as they try to evacuate flooded houses. So, this is global wetting....

  3. Yeah, I was all up for the UK becoming the new mediterrean... but I guess all that melted polar ice was gonna have to go somewhere... dumping it on Britain isn't the option I would have picked!

  5. Climate warmer -> more moisture in the atmosphere from evaporation -> precipitates over the places it always did, most noticeably costal regions. i.e. we get more rain.
