This figure appears in chapter 16 of the NOAA-led State Summaries 2017 report.

The observed number of days with extreme precipitation (annual number of days with precipitation greater than 3 inches) for 1900–2014, averaged over 5-year periods; these values are averages from 37 long-term reporting stations. In an average year, 40%–50% of stations will experience a day with 3 inches or more of precipitation. In the historical record, the largest number of heavy precipitation events occurred from 1995–1999, with an average of 0.69 events per year, followed by 2005–2009, with an average of 0.58 events annually. The dark horizontal line is the long-term average (1900–2014) of 0.44 days per year. Source: CICS-NC and NOAA NCEI.
