Observed Number of Extreme Precipitation Events
Figure 4.5Cooperative Institute for Climate and Satellites - NC
Kenneth E. Kunkel
The observed number of extreme precipitation events (annual number of events with greater than 3 inches) for 1900–2014, averaged over 5-year periods; these values are averages from 22 long-term reporting stations. There is no long-term trend, with the highest number of such events occurring during 2005–2009 because of very high values in 2008 and 2009. The dark horizontal line is the long-term average of a little over 1 day per year per station. Source: CICS-NC and NOAA NCEI.
