View Poll Results: Rate the climate change possibilities for north Texas under a 4 C warming the next 200 years
I think that north Texas will be even more solidly Clte with a major increase in year round rainfall higher humidity levels than present 2 16.67%
I predict north Texas May become a Mediterranean influenced subtropical climate under a 4 C warming 1 8.33%
I predict north Texas would degenerate into a hot semi arid climate with subtropical traits under a 4 C warming 5 41.67%
I predict that north Texas would have hotter summers and colder winters than present under a 4 C warming 2 16.67%
I predict that North Texas would remain a Cfa climate with similar temperatures and precipitation patterns as present day north Texas 1 8.33%
I predict north Texas could degenerate into a subtropical arid climate not unlike Phoenix or Vegas under a 4 C warming 2 16.67%
Other opinion(please explain why you chose this option in this poll) 1 8.33%

How do you think North Texas climate will change with a 4 C/ 7.2 F increase in temperature over the next 200 years?

It will most likely turn into what Las Vegas or Phoenix are like today. It just makes sense...

What do you think?

I feel that May only happen if there was a severe drying of North Texas’ climate under a 4 C warming…….so far, north Texas has seen an increase in annual rainfall so far, and the new 1991-2020 normals reflect that, if current trends continue I feel north Texas might become more like San Antonio or maybe even Houston, assuming humidity and rainfall levels continue to increase under a warmer climate

Most likely will become hot semiarid. The semiarid climates are already pushing east across the Plains, I think this is a fairly safe bet. Will not become fully arid due to proximity to the Gulf of Mexico.

Looks like the option for degeneration into a hot semi arid climate is in the lead so far……

That's because most here have no idea what they're talking about

Warmer winters mixed with colder cold snaps due to continued and more frequent sudden stratospheric warmings at the pole, magnifying the Rossby wave tendency for cold polar air to sag south east of the Rockies.

Summers are a tough call. We know the temperate zone will move north. One scenario is for N Texas to get hotter and drier, the other is for the Gulf influence to expand and bring hotter temps but higher humidity and increased precip. Increased CO2 leads to higher vapor pressure in the atmosphere so the Gulf should get more humid. New Orleans and Corpus Christi could see humidity "death days" as the wet bulb hits 35 C on occasion.

Winter precipitation decreases but summer precipitation will increase as strong late spring heating attracts gulf moisture. The summer maximum could shift from August to June or earliest part of July. August or September become the new wettest months.
