 Abstract: We investigate the performance of the 12-km horizontal resolution simulations that are increasingly becoming available from the CORDEX simulations, as part of the Phase I CORDEX regional climate model runs (which mainly contain climate downscaling simulations at a grid spacing of about 50 km). In this preliminary work we evaluate 12-km CORDEX simulations driven by the ERA-Interim re-analyses for the period 1980–2010 with a focus in the Levant, broadly defined as the region encompassing the eastern Mediterranean. The 12-km modelled climatology, variability and trends of temperature and precipitation are compared with station measurements from different locations in the region and their performance is assessed. Biases of a few degrees are assigned to the model while the inter-annual variability and longer-term trends is reproduced nicely.
