Short summary
Spatiotemporal characteristics of extreme precipitation and temperature in Yunnan Province, China, were analyzed by using observed daily data at 28 meteorological stations from 1959-2013 in this study.Both maximum and minimum temperature showed significant increasing tendency while there was not obvious changes for precipitation.It was noted that extreme precipitation and temperature events occurred more frequently in central region where the risk of extreme climatic events was greater.
