The number of days per year with more than 1 inch of precipitation will increase across the Southern Great Plains by the middle of the century.
The frequency and intensity of heavy precipitation events are anticipated to continue to increase, particularly under higher scenarios and later in the century. Most of the Southern Great Plains region is projected to experience 0 to 30% more days each year with more than an inch of precipitation by the middle of the century. Days with more than 2 inches, 3 inches, and 4 inches of precipitation are also expected to occur more regularly. Rare events, such as 100-year floods, may also become more common.
