Abstract:

Composite six-hourly precipitation maps are presented for twenty extratropical cyclones in the eastern United States. The cyclones have been separated into two groups, one consisting of cyclones which developed in high latitudes and moved eastward, the other of cyclones which developed in low latitudes and moved northeastward. The life histories of the two precipitation distributions are shown in two series of composite maps. Confidence limits on the composite precipitation maxima are provided.
