North America will continue to experience more heat waves, intense rains, increased drought, and stronger hurricanes due to the worsening effects of climate change, says a new report from the U.S. federal government.

The gist: People who love watching Xtreme Weather shows will not be disappointed. “This report addresses one of the most frequently asked questions about global warming: what will happen to weather and climate extremes?” said Tom Karl of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. “This synthesis … concludes that we are now witnessing and will increasingly experience more extreme weather and climate events.”
