Climate change assessment of the Fire Weather Index (FWI) aggregated component, computed daily from 1980 to 2100 for five models (see Table 4 of de Rigo et al., 2017 https://doi.org/10.2760/13180). The daily FWI is computed for each scenario realisation based on a corresponding model. The entire time series has been estimated and the 90 % quantile of each time period has been computed. The median of the five model ensemble is shown for each period.
