I have climate data but the precipitation values are missing, I would like to know if there is any formula used to estimate the precipitation value from the other recorded climate data: temperature, dew point and humidity.

    $\begingroup$ Since precipitation is weather (very short-term climate) you will want to have other weather data, not climate data, to predict the missing precipitation values. But--knowing a little bit about weather--I doubt you will achieve accurate predictions of precipitation amounts from just temp, dew point, and humidity. But maybe you could infer precipitation events. This raises two questions: exactly what precipitation "value" are you interested in and what is the temporal frequency of the data you have? $\endgroup$
