The probability that the 1.5 degree warming will be achieved in at least one year from 2020 to 2024 is 20 percent. This does not include the worldwide lockdown due to the coronavirus.

As the temperatures between the poles and the tropical regions equalize, the jet stream slows down. As a result, there is less air movement and weather conditions can remain in one place for longer periods.

This leads to weather extremes such as drought and flooding, which also last longer, as we can already observe worldwide.
