Abstract

As the climate warms, the frequency and scale of extremely hot events are likely to increase. This study predicts overheating risk for the city of Sheffield, UK at a spatial resolution of 5km when the diurnal Urban Heat Island effect is included. Local Hot Summer Years for current and future years are introduced based on the outputs from the UK Climate Projections weather generator. It is found that overheating risk in the urban sites is higher than the adjacent sites and the discrepancy increases with changing climate. Therefore, it is suggested that in general overheating risk is calculated at a high spatial resolution.
