- Mean annual temperature has increased by 0.9 ̊C since 1960.
- Statistically significant precipitation decreases of around 10mm to 15mm per decade have been observed in the southern regions of Senegal in the wet season (July-September) between 1960 and 2006.
- The mean annual temperature is projected to increase by 1.1 ̊C to 3.1 ̊C by the 2060s, and 1.7 ̊C to 4.9 ̊C by the 2090s. The projected rate of warming is faster in the interior regions than in areas closer to the coast.
- A wide range of precipitation changes are possible for Senegal but the likelihood is for decreases, particularly in the July-September wet season.
