Shindell, D., P. Racherla, and G. Milly, 2014: Reply to comment of Laprise on "The added value to global model projections of climate change by dynamical downscaling: A case study over the continental U.S. using the GISS-ModelE2 and WRF models". J. Geophys. Res. Atmos., 119, no. 7, 3882-3885, doi:10.1002/2013JD020732.

In his comment, Laprise raises several points that we agree merit consideration. His primary critique is that our study [Racherla et al., 2012] tested the ability of the WRF regional climate model to reproduce historical temperature and precipitation change relative to the driving global climate model (GCM) using only a single simulation rather than an ensemble. He asserts that the observed changes are smaller than the internal variability in the climate system (i.e. not statistically significant), and that thus a single simulation should not necessarily be able to capture the observations.
