Perhaps closer to the OP - the range of a tropical cyclone (aka hurricane, typhoon) is critically dependant upon sea surface temperature. They won’t form if the temperature of the sea surface is below 26.5C. They can travel over colder water once formed, but cold water will tend to weaken or extinguish them (well drop them back to a simple low pressure system.)
Ocean currents cause temperature differences on a global scale, and this controls the range of tropical cyclones significantly. A good example is the concentration and range across the two sides of the North American continent. Nice pic from Wikpedia The North Atlantic Conveyor (aka Gulf Stream) is responsible for the higher sea surface temperatures up the Atlantic coast, and with it, it brings the hurricanes.
A single degree change in sea surface temperature can extend the range of tropical cyclones by hundreds of kilometres, bringing cities or even countries into their path when before they never or very rarely occurred.
The North Atlantic Conveyor is itself a great example of how a very small change could have massive knock on effects. Its circulation is critically dependant upon the sinking of cold more salty water in the North Atlantic. If this sinking effect stopped, the circulation would shut down. What is worrying is that it is not clear how the circulation starts again. So one scenario has a large scale ice melt diluting the salt water, reducing its density, and shutting down the entire Gulf Stream. It is generally accepted that Europe is dependant upon the Gulf Stream for its climate - and so shutting down the flow could bring about massive drops in temperature, large scale crop failures across Europe, and little short of eco-political calamity on a planetary scale. On the up side, hurricanes would probably be less of a problem on the east coast of the US.
