Linear trends in warm and cold days (temperature) and rainfall for Zimbabwe

Diurnal temperature range is decreasing, while deviations in precipitation are increasing.

The diurnal temperature gap is closing: there are more hot days and fewer cold days over time. The diurnal temperature range decreased over the years 1950-2000 over land. Nighttime minimum temperatures increased at twice the rate of daytime maximum temperatures. Precipitation deviations from a long-term mean are increasing during the last century.
