A research team from across Europe has found that a global 2°C rise in average temperature could see much of continental Europe warming by up to 3°C, with the more northerly and western parts of the region less severely affected. The results from the IMPACT2C programme indicate differences across Europe in impacts on rainfall and extremes, as well as average temperature.
