Abstract

This document presents results for the analysis of extreme wind events and lightning risk as simulated in a regional climate model for the historic period 1970-2000 and projected future period 2040-2070. These results are based on three regional climate simulations using the WRF (Weather Research and Forecasting) regional climate model, each driven by a different global climate model.
