Short summary
A new observational dataset of daily precipitation and temperatures for the Iberian Peninsula and the Balearic Islands has been developed and made publicly available for the community. In this work the capabilities of the new dataset to reproduce the mean and extreme regimes of precipitation and temperature are assessed and compared with the E-OBS dataset (including the ensemble version for observational uncertainty assessment).
