This figure appears in chapter 1 of the The Impacts of Climate Change on Human Health in the United States: A Scientific Assessment report.
Time series of 5-year averages of the number of extreme 2-day duration precipitation events, averaged over the United States from 1900 to 2014. The number is expressed as the percent difference from the average for the entire period. This is based on 726 stations that have precipitation data for at least 90% of the days in the period. An event is considered extreme if the precipitation amount exceeds a threshold for a once-per-year recurrence. (Figure source: adapted from Mellilo et al. 2014)dd5b893d-4462-4bb3-9205-67b532919566
