Reproduction of daily maximum and minimum temperatures, including tails of their distributions and links to large-scale circulation, is evaluated in an ensemble of high-resolution regional climate model (RCM) simulations over the Czech Republic. RCM data for recent climate (1961–1990) are validated against observed data gridded from a high-density station network. We find large biases in mean monthly temperatures and in seasonal extremes, which are significant in most RCMs throughout the year. The results suggest that an RCM's formulation plays a much more important role in summer, whereas in winter RCM performance is closely linked to the driving GCM. Biases are usually larger for extremes than central parts of temperature distributions, and RCMs tend to underestimate the severity of extremes in both seasons.
