Figure 4: The observed number of extreme precipitation events (annual number of days with precipitation of 2 inches or more) 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. The horizontal black line shows the long-term average for 1900–2018 is 0.9 days per year. These values are averages from 25 long-term reporting stations. A typical station experiences 1 such event each year. Ohio has experienced a dramatic increase in the number of heavy rain events, with the past 24 years having the highest levels on record since the historic peak from 1910 to 1914.
