- The mean annual temperature increased by 0.9°C between 1960 and 2006, an average increase of 0.21°C per decade.
- As year-to-year variability in rainfall is very high in Malawi, long-term trends are difficult to identify. In 2006, wet-season (December-February) rainfall was markedly low, however, evidence does not reveal consistent decreases.
- The mean annual temperature is projected to increase by 1.1 ̊C to 3.0 ̊C by the 2060s, and 1.5 ̊C to 5.0 ̊C by the 2090s.
- Projections of mean rainfall do not indicate substantial changes, although the range of projections from different models is large and straddles both negative and positive changes (‐13% to +32%). Seasonally, the projections tend towards decreases in dry season rainfall and increases in wet season rainfall.
