If the UK might get more rainfall, our pacific northwest USA, with similar conditions, plus mountains, might get more rain & also snowfall in our mountains. So far, we aren't seeing a major change in yearly precipitation. However, we are getting a bit extra precipitation in the winter, & somewhat less precipitation in the summer. Plus, our Mt. Baker & Mt. Rainier have set yearly snowfall records within the last 20 years of 1140 inches & 1122 inches.
