This figure appears in chapter 1 of the NOAA-led State Summaries 2019 report.

The observed number of extreme precipitation events (annual number of days with precipitation of 3 or more inches) for 1900–2018, averaged over 5-year periods (bars; last bar represents 4-year average). Filled circles connected by black line segments show annual values. These values are averages from 11 long-term reporting stations. Alabama has experienced a generally above average number of extreme precipitation events since 1995, but there is no overall trend. The dark horizontal line is the long-term average of 1.1 days per year. Source: CICS-NC and NOAA NCEI.
