Low emissions scenario

The wider range is from the lowest to highest value for all emissions scenarios and three (10, 50, and 90%) probability levels for each 30-year time period.

  • Under low emissions, the central estimate of increase in winter mean temperature is 2.5ºC; it is very unlikely to be less than 1.4ºC and is very unlikely to be more than 3.9ºC. A wider range of uncertainty is from 1.4ºC to 5.5ºC.
  • Under low emissions, the central estimate of increase in summer mean temperature is 2.5ºC; it is very unlikely to be less than 1.1ºC and is very unlikely to be more than 4.3ºC. A wider range of uncertainty is from 1.1ºC to 6.8ºC.
  • Under low emissions, the central estimate of increase in summer mean daily maximum temperature is 3.4ºC; it is very unlikely to be less than 1.1ºC and is very unlikely to be more than 6.1ºC. A wider range of uncertainty is from 1.1ºC to 9.5ºC.
  • Under low emissions, the central estimate of increase in summer mean daily minimum temperature is 2.8ºC; it is very unlikely to be less than 1.2ºC and is very unlikely to be more than 5ºC. A wider range of uncertainty is from 1.2ºC to 7.9ºC.
  • Under low emissions, the central estimate of change in annual mean precipitation is 0%; it is very unlikely to be less than -4% and is very unlikely to be more than 5%. A wider range of uncertainty is from -5% to 6%.
  • Under low emissions, the central estimate of change in winter mean precipitation is 12%; it is very unlikely to be less than 2% and is very unlikely to be more than 26%. A wider range of uncertainty is from 2% to 42%.
  • Under low emissions, the central estimate of change in summer mean precipitation is -17%; it is very unlikely to be less than -36% and is very unlikely to be more than 4%. A wider range of uncertainty is from -52% to 4%.
