With global warming it was first thought that the number and strengh of hurricanes would increase as the tropical zones warmed. However, this does not seem to be the case, and warming has been patchy accross the globe and most extreme in the Arctic.

The most and exceptional weather appears to be occuring in the mid-latitudes, through droughts and tornadoes in the US, and wetter summers and drier-colder-snowyer winters in Britain and Europe, and lowered avearge rainfall and droughts in Australia.

The number of hurricanes has been slightly declining since 1998.
