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 thirty-nine long-term reporting stations. The dark horizontal lines represent the long-term average. A typical station experiences 1–2 days annually with 2 inches or more of precipitation. In recent years, Iowa has experienced the largest number of such events in the historical record. Source: CICS-NC and NOAA NCEI.
