The Midwestern Regional Climate Center (MRCC) compiles and tracks precipitation data across the Midwest and can place events into an historical context such that their behavior can be objectively compared and assessed. Atmospheric patterns that brought heavy rainfall to parts of the Midwestern U.S. over the past 18 months are described and compared against historical rainfall records to help understand the implications of anomalous and even extreme rainfall on ecosystems and habitats. A variety of rainfall data and visualization tools maintained by the MRCC are also demonstrated.
