  1. Predicting the weather is a difficult and complex process. But warmer temperatures could affect everything from the intensity of trade winds to which regions of the globe receive the most rainfall. As the oceans warm, water will evaporate and form rain in regions that normally would be dry due to cooler ocean temperatures. Arctic ice and various glaciers will melt at faster rates than normal, which could impact the sea level. And while we don't fully understand the relationship between massive storms and ocean temperatures, it's possible that we could see more frequent and intense hurricanes.
