Global warming could subtract days of perfect temperature

This is what the first study on good weather published by the scientific journal Climate Change reveals. Those perfect days in which it is not too hot, not too cold and in which there is not too much humidity, could be subtracted in the future as a consequence of global warming in many parts of the world.

The most affected areas will be the tropics, although there will also be places where we will enjoy these days more, such as Europe or Seattle.

Those days when the weather invites you to be outside, whether to exercise, have a picnic with the family or simply to enjoy the outdoors, are those that are characterized by having a temperature between 18 and 30ºC, very low humidity and only some high clouds.

According to the study, in the last 30 years there have been 74 days with these conditions, but from 2035 they will be reduced, first to 70 and then to 64 in the last twenty years of the century. Although, of course, it will not harm all areas equally.

Field in summer

The most affected will be Rio de Janeiro, with an average of 40 days of perfect weather less; Miami, with 32 days less; Washington, 13; Atlanta 12, Chicago, 9, New York, 6; Dallas, 1. Much of Africa, southern Asia, northern Australia, and eastern South America will also be affected. On the other hand, the places that benefit the most, where the number of perfect days will grow are Seattle, Los Angeles, England and northern Europe.

Scientists focus on extreme weather and how it could worsen as the global average temperature rises for their research, which should serve to raise awareness of what is happening in the world and take steps to prevent the situation get worse.
