The observed number of extreme precipitation events (precipitation amounts greater than 2 inches) for 1900–2014, averaged over 5-year periods; these values are averages from 10 long-term reporting stations. The number of events is highly variable but exhibits a long-term upward trend. The 5-year period between 1995 and 1999 surpassed a 1940s record. The dark horizontal line is the long-term average (1900–2014) of 1.6 days per year. Source: CICS-NC and NOAA NCEI.
