Figure 20.4

This figure appears in chapter 20 of the NOAA-led State Summaries 2017 report.

The observed number of extreme precipitation events (days with precipitation greater than 2 inches) for 1950–2014, averaged over 5-year periods; these values are averages from 16 available long-term reporting stations. The dark horizontal lines represent the long-term average. The number of extreme precipitation events has been above average during the last 10 years. The number of extreme precipitation events for the contiguous United States (bottom panel) is also shown to provide a longer and larger context. Long-term stations back to 1900 were not available for Maryland. Source: CICS-NC and NOAA NCEI.
