In order to allow for an outlook into future climate conditions, rainfall and temperature variability in present day and for future climate scenarios were estimated by an RCM approach. The analysis of the results points to a continuation of the trend observed in the 20th century. The RCM scenarios show reliable results, although a model bias towards dryer climates can be seen. The existence of this model bias is – due to the high complexity of the simulated processes – not very surprising. It has to be taken into account when interpreting the results and might be used in future research to identify sections, where the description of the climate system could be improved.
