Short summary
This paper examines the simulataneous exceedance of daily accumulated precipitation (RR) and minimum (TN) temperature thresholds in Greece for the period 1980–2004 and for each month in the period November to April. Available data from observations and projection simulations are used to calculate the probabilities of extreme wet-cold compound events at the past. Models are validated by the observational data.
