Key Idea Incidents of extreme weather are projected to increase as a result of climate change. Many locations will see a substantial increase in the number of heat waves they experience per year and a likely decrease in episodes of severe cold. Precipitation events are expected to become less
frequent but more intense in many areas, and droughts will be more frequent and severe in areas where average precipitation is projected to decrease. (Climate Literacy Principle 7C)
