Higher temperatures drive risk of flash floods: study

The United Nation's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says that given present emissions trends, the planet could be up to 4.8 degrees Celsius (40 degrees Fahrenheit) warmer by 2100Warmer temperatures have a dramatic effect on rainfall patterns, heightening the risk of flash floods, according to an Australian study published on Monday. In research published in the journal Nature Geoscience, civil engineers at the University of New South Wales analysed nearly 40,000 storms that occurred in Australia over a 30-year span. “These more intense patterns are leading to more destructive storms, which can significantly influence the severity of flood flows,” said lead author Conrad Wasko.
