    The study compares daily temperatures in two data sets interpolated from irregularly spaced meteorological stations to a regular grid: the European gridded data set (E-OBS), produced from a relatively sparse network of stations available in the European Climate Assessment and Dataset (ECA&D) project, and a data set gridded onto the same grid from a high-density network of stations in the Czech Republic (GriSt). We show that large differences exist between the two gridded data sets, the errors tend to be larger in tails of the distributions. A large bias is found also for the diurnal temperature range. Comparison with simple average series from stations in two regions reveals that differences between GriSt and the station averages are minor relative to differences between E-OBS and either of the two data sets. The large deviations between the two gridded data sets affect conclusions concerning validation of temperature characteristics in regional climate model (RCM) simulations.
