Projection for 2061-2080

Temperature predictions for the Andes using the high emission climate change scenarios (Jiang et al. 2000; IPCC, 2014) indicate that temperatures in the Andes could increase by 2–5 °C by the end of the 21st century (Hijmans et al., 2005; Cabré et al., 2016). The degree of warming varies, but according to one study, it could be most intense at high elevations in the Cordillera Blanca region in Peru (Urrutia and Vuille, 2009). In addition, by 2100 there could be a much larger inter-annual temperature variability, a higher likelihood of extremely hot years, with even the coldest years much warmer than the warmest years observed today (Urrutia and Vuille, 2009).
