Atmospheric circulation is one of the main climate-forming factors that determine changes in the regime and territorial distribution of climatic elements. On the other hand, changes in air temperature affect baric centers in the atmosphere and lead to changes in atmospheric circulation characteristics. Knowledge of the role of atmospheric circulation in changes in air temperature and precipitation can contribute to a better determination of the extent of anthropogenic influence on climate change. Scientific research shows that due to climate change, extreme weather and climate phenomena such as high temperatures, heat waves, intense precipitation, and droughts are becoming more frequent and intense. At the regional and local level, the manifestation of extreme phenomena is influenced by the specific features of relief and atmospheric circulation, which determines the importance of regional studies of climate and climate-forming factors.
The aim of this Special Issue is to contribute to the clarification of causal relationships in the climate system and specifically of the relationships among air temperature, precipitation, and atmospheric circulation at the global, regional, and local levels. Special attention will be given to the circulation mechanisms leading to the occurrence of extreme temperatures and precipitation.
The results from original research works and review papers analyzing the peculiarities of the spatial and temporal variabilities of air temperature and precipitation in relation to global, regional, and local circulation patterns will be published in the Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Atmosphere is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
