Abstract Abstract—This paper studies three statistical downscaling methods to predict temperature and rainfall at 45 weather stations in Thailand. Methods under consideration are multiple linear regressions (MLR), support vector machine with polynomial kernel (SVM-POL), and support vector machine with Radial Basis Function kernel (SVM-RBF). Large-scale data are from Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL). Five predictor variables are chosen: (1) temperature, (2) pressure, (3) precipitation, (4) evaporator, and (5) net short wave. Accuracy is assessed by 10-fold cross-validation in terms of root-mean-squared error (RMSE) and correlation coefficient (R). SVM-RBF is the most accurate model. Prediction accuracy of monthly average rainfall and temperature is satisfying in most part of the country. Lastly, downscaling models can project long term trends of monthly average rainfall and temperature. Index Terms — statistical downscaling, temperature, rainfall, multiple linear regressions, support vector machine.
