    ScienceDaily (Dec. 3, 2008) — The sun’s magnetic field may have a significant impact on weather and climatic parameters in Australia and other countries in the northern and southern hemispheres. According to a study in Geographical Research, the droughts are related to the solar magnetic phases and not the greenhouse effect.

    Thanks Wolram.

    The correlation between solar activity and ocean cycles on local effects has been studied here too:

    The Earth's magnetic field must also play a role and this has declined in strength by ~5% in the past 150 years.
