WorldClim version 2 has average monthly climate data for minimum, mean, and maximum temperature and for precipitation for 1970-2000.
This is beta release 1, June 2016. This version is for testing and feedback only. You are not allowed to redistribute these data.
You can download the variables for different spatial resolutions, from 30 seconds (~1 km2) to 10 minutes (~18 km2). Each download is a "zip" file containing 12 GeoTiff (.tif) files, one for each month of the year (January is 1; December is 12).
