Which sites can I assess Projected climate data (precipitation) for Southern Africa or what tools could be used to project the data using historical data to model in WEAP

Here are some options.

CMIP5 Data Download Portals:
(some of these sites are undergoing maintenance)
• http://pcmdi9.llnl.gov/
• http://esgf-index1.ceda.ac.uk
• http://esgf-data.dkrz.de
• http://esg2.nci.org.au

WorldClim (Climatology): http://www.worldclim.org/
Downscaled future monthly average IPPC5 (CMIP5) data from 19 different GCMs at 30’’, 2.5’, 5’, and 10’ resolutions for the following variables:
• Min, Max Temperature
• Precipitation
• Bioclim variables (see site for details)

Data is provided for four different relative carbon concentration pathways (RCPs) of 2.6, 4.5, 6.0, and 8.5 and for the years 2050 (average of 2041–2060) and 2070 (average of 2061–2080)

Thank you for this. May you please advise how to enter this climate data in WEAP. I'm not using the automatic catchment delineation mode. Thanks
