This figure appears in chapter 25 of the NOAA-led State Summaries 2017 report.

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 28 long-term reporting stations. The dark horizontal lines represent the long-term average. A typical station experiences 2–3 days annually with 2 inches or more of precipitation. Over the past three decades, Missouri has experienced an above average number of extreme precipitation events, with the highest number occurring during 2005–2009 when a typical station experienced 3–4 such events each year.
