    Author(s): Tasisa Temesgen* and Alemu A

    The trend analysis has been employed to inspect the change of rainfall and temperature in Dire Dawa city administration, using gauged monthly precipitation and temperature data obtained from National Meteorological Agency of Ethiopia from 1980 to 2014 and the future climate data of GCM used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change fifth generation CMIP5 and World Clim obtained from Agricultural Model Inter-Comparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP) website. Two models such as HadGEM2-ES and MRI-CGCM3 under rcp4.5 and 8.5 have been considered to generate rainfall, maximum and minimum temperature data using AgMIP R script of “run_ agmip_simple_delta R” in R software 3.5.3 version. Recent and future rainfall variability CV, Standard deviation and rainfall Anomaly have been computed using excel spread sheet for variability analysis and the Mann-Kendall test was used to..
