Abstract/Summary

Since 2007, UK and northwestern (NW) European summers have been anomalously wet, with summer 2007 being notable for signifi-cant f looding in southern England. Arctic sea ice extent had record low values in September 2007 and 2012 (Parkinson & Comiso, 2013). To explore the potential impact of these changes in sea ice on precipitation, we carried out a set of numerical simulations of the high-resolution version of HadAM3 (Pope et al. 2000) driven with different sea surface temperature and sea ice boundary conditions
