This figure appears in chapter 48 of the NOAA-led State Summaries 2017 report.

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 NCEI’s version 2 climate division dataset. There is no long-term trend but the numbers have been generally above average over the most recent 20 years. The dark horizontal line is the long-term average (1900–2014) of 0.9 days per station per year with precipitation greater than 2 inches. Source: CICS-NC and NOAA NCEI.
