Climate change warming Europe at varying degrees

Not all regions in Europe are warming at the same pace according to a new study.

Researchers at the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at the London School of Economics and Political Science, in collaboration with the University of Warwick, found summer temperatures have warmed fastest in a band from southern England and northern France to Denmark.

Eastern Spain and central Italy have seen a general warming in all seasons, however Norway and Sweden have seen little to no measurable difference in summer temperatures, but a 2 degree increase in winter nights.

Variability within countries has also been noted. In the north east of England the number of night frosts in winter has gone down by more than 10%, dropping at a greater rate than elsewhere in the country.
