Short summary
Climate change is affecting the stability of the atmosphere and increasing the occurrence of extreme rainfall and floods, which pose natural hazards with major socio-economic and health impacts. We show that such events tend to follow arrivals of high-speed solar wind. The role of atmospheric waves generated in the auroral region as the mechanism mediating the influence of solar wind coupling to the magnetosphere–ionosphere–atmosphere system on the troposphere is highlighted.
