Dear Salomon,

You can definitely include climate change in WEAP, but it is up to you to decide how you want to characterize it. You can build a Scenario using the "Manage Scenarios" option. The WEAP tutorial introduces this process in the Scenarios module. The section also includes an introduction to the Water Year Method, which you might find useful.
