Hey all I am looking for a average temperature data for Afghanistan monthly over a year, precipitation would work too. In a shapefile, if anyone has any or knows anywhere that I could access one please let me know.
WorldClim makes this type of information available - not specific to any country, but you can grab a grid of the applicable area. Note that there is a "not for commercial use" restriction, however you may be able to get permission - I have not tried.
