Subject: Temperature range allowed in WEAP   
Posted: 5/16/2019 Viewed: 2777 times
I am running climate change scenarios in WEAP and I get a running error as the projected temperatures I provide are outside the range accepted by WEAP, i.e. -50 to 50 oC. The historical temperatures I have for my studied system reach 45oC in summer and so it is likely that projections can exceed 50oC under RCP8.5. Is there any way to avoid WEAP constraining the value of that input variable?

Thanks,
Andrea

I assume you are using the MABIA or PGM method, and this is for daily maximum temperature? I can't imagine that a monthly or daily mean would be that hot. Nonetheless, I will increase the allowed maximum in the next version of WEAP to 60C. (Having a range helps detect when users are using Fahrenheit instead of Celcius as the temperature unit. WEAP requires Celcius.)
