Title:Frequency distributions and hydroclimatic characteristics of heavy rainstorms in Illinois
Author(s):Huff, Floyd A.; Angel, James R.
Contributor(s):Illinois State Water Survey
Geographic Coverage:Illinois
Abstract:This report presents the results of an extensive investigation of the distribution of heavy rainstorms in Illinois based on data for 61 precipitation stations operated during 1901-1983. Shown are frequency distributions of point rainfall for periods ranging from 5 minutes to 10 days and for recurrence intervals of from 2 months to I 00 years. Results are presented in two forms: mean relations for 10 regions of approximately homogeneous precipitation climate, and statewide isohyetal maps based on the 61-station data. Frequency relations are presented on both an annual and seasonal basis. Results of a special investigation are presented for Chicago and the surrounding six counties subject to urban influences on precipitation distribution. Information is provided on the expected dispersion of point rainfall frequency distributions about the mean in the 10 regions of similar rainstorm climate. Information is also provided on lhe spatial and temporal characteristics of heavy rainstorms in Illinois.
