Kenneth E. Kunkel
The observed number of days with extreme precipitation events (annual number of days with precipitation above 2 inches) for 1900–2014, averaged over 5-year periods; these values are averages from 21 available long-term reporting stations. The dark horizontal line represents the long-term average. A typical station experiences between 1 and 2 such events per year. The number of extreme precipitation events has been above average since the late 1980s. Between 2005 and 2009, Indiana experienced a record high number of events when stations averaged almost 3 events annually. Source: CICS-NC and NOAA NCEI.
