The Forest Service's West Wide Climate Change GeoBrowser is an online map viewer that displays GIS layers from the Climate Impacts Group's 2011 climate projections. The web site also offers a downloadable map document (MXD file) that lets users view the layers as map services in ArcMAP. Note: there is a significant portion of the Southern Rockies LCC that is not included in these data sets (parts of Colorado and New Mexico). The Climate Impacts Group's study covers four river basins (the Colorado River, Great Basin, Columbia River and Upper Missouri River Basins).

Link to Data in Data Basin. These data sets from the California Academy of Sciences show climate projections (temperature and precipitation) for all four seasons. From the California Academy of Sciences' metadata (for a precipitation projection): Using the simple anomaly method (modifying a historical baseline with differences or ratios projected by General Circulation Models), scientists from the California Academy of Sciences downscaled monthly total precipitation from 16 different global circulation models (GCMs). The GCMs were described in the latest Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC 2007) and archived at the WCRP PCMDI ( http://www-pcmdi.llnl.gov/ipcc/about_ipcc.php). Monthly total precipitation...
NOAA’s Historical Climate Trends product allows users to create and view graphs of trends in historical precipitation or temperature (annual or seasonal) over specific geographical areas. The graphs show how trends compare to long-term averages. The data source is NOAA's National Climatic Data Center.
The Colorado Plateau Rapid Ecoregional Assessment (REA) website contains links to the final report. Data from the report are shared through the Colorado Plateau REA Data Portal . Data portal maps are downloadable and many can be viewed through map services and ArcGIS.com. Climate Change is one of the change agents addressed in the assessment. Many of the climate projection maps cover the western U.S., not only the area of the Colorado Plateau. Here is a small sample of the maps available: Average Annual Temperature (1968-1999) from PRISM (Western US) Average Annual Temperature (2015-2030) Simulated by RegCM3 with ECHAM5 Projections as Boundary Conditions (Western US) Average Annual Total Precipitation...

Link: http://cida.usgs.gov/climate/derivative/ This is a climate visualization and downloading tool, which displays climate indicators derived from statistically downscaled global climate models. The following derivatives can be displayed: Days with Tmax Above (select threshold) Days with Tmax Below Days with Precip Above Longest Run with Tmax Above Longest Run with Precip Below Growing Degree Days Heating Degree Days Cooling Degree Days Growing Season Length

This data set is distributed through the Conservation Biology Institute's Data Basin site: http://app.databasin.org/app/pages/datasetPage.jsp?id=5a1a66e950534fd095dee1a68a8c6f61 From the metadata: "This dataset shows the predicted change in average precipitation between historical (1961-1990) and future (2070-2099) time periods, simulated by the dynamic global vegetation model MC1 under the Hadley climate change projection and the anthropogenic emissions scenario A2. Change in precipitation (per ~ 8 km pixel) is depicted as a ratio of the average precipitation for 2070-2099 / the average for 1961-1990. Data values above 1 represent a projected increase in precipitation and values less than 1 represent a projected...
From www.climatewizard.org: "Developed through collaboration between The Nature Conservancy, The University of Washington, and The University of Southern Mississippi, the Climate Wizard enables technical and non-technical audiences alike to easily and intuitively access leading climate change information and visualize the impacts anywhere on Earth. The first generation of this web-based program—which was recently launched at www.climatewizard.org—allows the user to choose a state or country and see both the climate change that has occurred to date and the climate change that is predicted to occur. Simply put, Climate Wizard can be used to assess how climate has changed over time and to project what future changes...
The Regional Climate Downloader (RCD) is a web application designed to visualize and download data from our Thredds catalog. From the Climate Downloader website: "We have completed an array of high-resolution simulations of present and future climate over Western North America (WNA) and Eastern North America (ENA) by dynamically downscaling global climate simulations using a regional climate model, RegCM3. The simulations are intended to provide long time series of internally consistent surface and atmospheric variables for use in climate-related research. In addition to providing high-resolution weather and climate data for the past, present, and future, we have developed an integrated data flow and methodology...
This data set is distributed through the Conservation Biology Institute's Data Basin site: http://app.databasin.org/app/pages/datasetPage.jsp?id=e2d159c08cd7463b9fcf8e5d8ae66740 A description from the metadata: "This dataset shows the predicted rise in temperature between historical (1961-1990) and future (2070-2099) time periods, simulated by the dynamic global vegetation model MC1 underthe Hadley climate change projection and the anthropogenic emissions scenario A2. Temperature change (in degrees C) was calculated by taking the difference between the simulated future average monthly maximum temperature and the historical average monthly maximum temperature per ~ 8 km pixel. Background: The dynamic global...
The North America climate data were derived from WorldClim (http://www.worldclim.org/), a set of global climate layers developed by the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology at the University of California, Berkeley, USA, in collaboration with The International Center for Tropical Agriculture (http://www.ciat.cgiar.org/Paginas/index.aspx) and Rainforest CRC (http://www.jcu.edu.au/rainforest/) with support from NatureServe (http://www.natureserve.org/). The global climate data layers were generated through interpolation of average monthly climate data from weather stations across North America. The result is a 30-arc-second-resolution (1-Km) grid of mean temperature values. The North American data were clipped from the...
The PRISM Climate Group website contains historical temperature and precipitation data (time range of 1890-2013). Downloadable gridded data are available in graphics and GIS files, and historical conditions for point locations can be queried through the PRISM data explorer.
