Observed Number of Extreme Precipitation Events

Kenneth E. Kunkel
The observed number of extreme precipitation events (annual number of events with greater than 2 inches) for 1900–2014, averaged over 5-year periods; these values are averages from 17 long-term reporting stations. The number of extreme precipitation events for the contiguous United States (bottom panel) is also shown to provide a longer and larger context. The dark horizontal lines represent the long-term average. Long-term stations back to 1900 were not available for New Hampshire. The number of extreme precipitation events has been the highest during the last decade. Source: CICS-NC and NOAA NCEI.
