Many problems in current climate research deal with extreme events. Since by definition there are few observations of really extreme events, it is a statistical challenge to assess whether observed trends are significant. In this paper we illustrate one method to look for climate signals in extreme temperature data, and how to compare the data to a climate simulation based on a regional climate model.
