The Bureau of Meteorology is Australia's national weather, climate and water agency. Its expertise and services assist Australians in dealing with the harsh realities of their natural environment, including drought, floods, fires, storms, tsunami and tropical cyclones. Through regular forecasts, warnings, monitoring and advice spanning the Australian region and Antarctic territory, the Bureau provides one of the most fundamental and widely used services of government.

1   Link   Rainfall and temperature projections for south-west and north-west Western Australia
This links to the CSIRO Data Access Portal which hosts the statistically downscaled projections for daily rainfall and maximum and minimum temperature for south-west WA (29 sites) and north-west WA (9 Kimberley sites and 10 Pilbara sites). These fine-scale projections for mid-century and end-of-century time periods are useful for climate change adaptation management and planning (but see caveats & limitations under "Lineage" and "Read me" files). These results are provided as CSV (comma-separated-values) files.
