, and how this influences global precipitation. Hopefully this might lead to improved predictions of regional precipitation changes. Career background Tim joined the Climate sensitivity and feedbacks group in Met Office Hadley Centre in 2010. Prior to that, Tim completed a PhD at the University of Leeds


and Leeds City Council. However, the group agreed that the information couldn’t provide robust estimates of changes in intense rainfall and wanted to understand how UKCP18 could. At the other extreme, although prolonged drought is a relatively infrequent hazard in Yorkshire, the consequences are costly
