Thanks for this thread KW..

I too have been thinking about things in a similar way and this thread is probably the best place to develop (introduce) my thoughts.

A lot of the records you quote compare with historical data to try and  give an idea as to the exceptional nature of the event.

Over the last year we have had a couple of major events in Europe  (IMO)  (eg) the rainfall on the Belgium Dutch and German border which was compared with a similar event almost exactly 100 years previous  (1923 from memory), and the more recent event in Northern Italy.  (again called a one in a hundred year event), 

There have obviously been other local events associated with perhaps local  storms, but these are difficult to quantify, as there are so many of them  (thinking in terms of the  Lynton/Lymouth and the St Asaph one above Camborne (more recently), but these have always happened, This can be seen when one studies the character of the surrounding features  of the land. 

I will also add last years maximum UK temp to the list of useful events (one in a hundred years) , and also the East coast flood of 1953, together with the exceptional snowfalls of 1947 as events which could be described as a truly exceptional countrywide event.

 I recognise that the one a in a .....    syndrome was developed by hydrologists as a means of measuring rainfall events for the Insurance industry, when setting insurance premiums.

But the point I am raising is that we could  use the national overall country wide ones in a hundred year events to monitor our changing climate,   --- with this being  accumulated worldwide?. 

The UK is a very good case to take as an example, The reason it being chosen as a good example is because of our changing climate and also its size.  The UK is about 90K square miles. England being about 50,000 sq  miles would put in about in the middle of the 50 odd United States states eg..

It would almost occupy the same position in the European countries.

As such England is about 1 in 1200 the size of the land area on earth (57.5 million square miles). Total earth area is 197 million square miles so about 137 million miles on earth is ocean.

So using countries (states - where applicable) would end up  giving us a sample size of something like a 600 - 1000 as a sample of data.. 

This I would suggest should be adequate to establish whether we  enter a new climate regime (or not).

These days it need not stop at land measurements. If oceans are warming then we should to see satellite measurements begin to pick this up. These measurements would pick upon the severity of storms at sea, as well as sea temperatures  -though clearly we do not have the same length of data with which to assess/judge.

So my views are that these sorts of measurements over time could/will give a better and more accurate assessments of any change of our climate , then by simply reporting that this thunderstorm or this wind strength has beaten such and such a record, which seems to be todays scatter-gun approach to the problem. 

Clearly a lot of work would need to performed in order to establish the base lines. Once set up it should be reasonably easy to monitor.

I would suggest that it  should suite a university Phd student, or one with a lot of free time.

I am holiday for a fortnight shortly, but i would be interested in other peoples opinions on this approach..

Interesting that New York has tied the record low of 1976 when the charts we're seeing at the moment over here are looking very reminiscent of that year.

Pretty impressive stats from Maine there considering the average high in Portland in June is 23C. That 10C maximum in Bangor would be like us getting a high of 5/6C - pretty hard to imagine.

The agency noted that 179 millimeters of rain had fallen in Tsukuba in Ibaraki Prefecture, the most ever recorded in Japan over a 12-hour period, as of 9:20 a.m. on June 2.

Other municipalities with record rainfall so far this month were Koshigaya in Saitama Prefecture with 152 mm; Tokyo’s Nerima Ward with 145 mm; and Funabashi in Chiba Prefecture with 128 mm.

Izu in Shizuoka Prefecture and Toba in Mie Prefecture were among areas with a combined rainfall exceeding 500 mm from June 1 when steady rain first appeared.

At least one person was killed and 30 others injured as powerful Typhoon No. 2 brought record-breaking rainfall to eastern Japan through June 3.

Won't get much more abnormal than this, truly apocalyptic and resembling Mars 👀🥴🥴

Hey, great thread. Been a member since 2006 😮 but rarely post, I still visit regularly and read. Love extreme weather. I hope you don't mind me posting, I just moved to Bermuda, and since I arrived, they have had the wettest May since 1949 and it has carried on into June. The cumulative 30-day total is now 362mm. I am cautiously looking ahead to hurricane season and what that may bring!! Cheers, Paul.
