Elsewhere there is overall low confidence because of inconsistent projections. 3] Observed: Medium confidence that some regions of the world have experienced more intense and longer droughts, but in some regions droughts have become less frequent, less intense, or shorter. 4] Projected: Likely that the global frequency of tropical cyclones will either decrease or remain essentially unchanged. Likely increase in average tropical cyclone maximum wind speed, although increases may not occur in all ocean basins.
