Kenneth E. Kunkel
The observed number of extreme precipitation events (annual number of events with greater than 4 inches divided by the number of long-term stations) for 1950–2014, averaged over 5-year periods; these values are averages from 12 long-term reporting stations. The dark horizontal line represents the long-term average. Significant variability is observed over the recorded 5-year periods. A record number of such events occurred during the most recent 5-year period (2010–2014) with an average of about 0.8 events per station per year. Source: CICS-NC and NOAA NCEI.
