[R] Spatial & Temporal Analysis of Daily Rainfall, Temperature Data

Dear R experts,
I have a problem which I don't seem to get to pass. I want to analyze daily
rainfall & temperature data with a lot of missing or unavailable points. I
have been asked to use evd, evir, ismev and geoR packages. I have not used R
before neither do I know any computer languages let alone programming.
I was asked to put my data in excel spreadsheet then convert it into tab
delimited or txt format. The problem am having is importing it into R. it
says factors are not numeric or something like that with a lot of warnings.
Would someone kindly advise how I can solve this problem, please.
Looking forward to your support as R experts.
Henry Utila

       Have you considered Box and Draper (2007) Response Surfaces,
Mixtures, and Ridge Analyses, 2nd Edition?

       You probably know that George Box invented the field of Response 
Surfaces with  Box, G. E. P. and Wilson, K.B. (1951) On the Experimental 
Attainment of Optimum Conditions (with discussion). Journal of the Royal 
Statistical Society Series B13(1):1-45.

       This book describes how to design experiments to get the data to 
optimize a physical process.  I haven't been teaching in academia for 
the past 25 years, but I taught an advanced course from the first 
edition of this book when I did.

       Still, any title "with R" sounds like it's worth reviewing and 
maybe using.
