Abstract

A number of studies have shown that rainfall differences between drought years and other years often result from the absence of large rain producing systems, while the frequency of small rain storms may be similar. This study examines possible differences in storm characteristics during dry and normal seasons, by evaluating the radar echo characteristics of rain events occurring in central Illinois during the drought summer of 1988 and the normal-rain summer of 1989.
