This figure appears in chapter 32 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 16 long-term reporting stations. A typical station experiences one such event each year. Over the past 20 years, New York has experienced an above average number of extreme rain events, with the most recent 5-year period (2010–2014) experiencing the highest frequency in the historical record. The dark horizontal line is the long-term average of about one day per year. Source: CICS-NC and NOAA NCEI.
