In Fig. 5b, time series of rainfall indices for the winter months (Nov-Apr) are compared to CRU time series. The series are plotted as standardized anomalies to the 1961-1990 period. We can see, that for the ATL region winter rainfall variations (blue bars in the plot of the CRU data) are quite good in phase with the observations, but for the MED and SOA regions we can see larger differences.

Circles represent the locations of the stations, numbers the observed 1961-1990 mean annual rainfall sum in mm. still relatively sparse when we think of the spatial heterogeneity of climates. The first and most important source of information stems from SYNOP weather stations, which contribute to the WMO network and deliver data of a relatively high quality standard for several decades now. Unfortunately, most stations in Morocco and the western parts of Algeria are located north of the Atlas Mountains, which leaves a lack of information exactly in the southern region, where the impact of a climate shift is expected to be very strong (Fig.
