Keywords: globalwarming, rainfall
Yes. Global warming changes weather patterns. In extreme cases, places that have had moist winds which would give lots of rain have the winds diverted somewhere else and so become dryer; the places the winds are diverted to are likely to become wetter.
Yes, we are observing differences in rainfall in a lot of places on Earth. I think some of the most drastic effects are in the mountains of central asia. The snow and ice and rain in that area eventually provide water for around 1 billion people in China and India, so if the amount of water that area gets changes a lot, there will be very severe effects!
@achuei: Yes, as Peter and Kyler have already said, global warming can have varied affects around the world as it influences our climate.
NASA have a great website that has lots of information about climate change, you might enjoy having a look: http://climatekids.nasa.gov/menu/weather-and-climate/
