Abstract

A synoptic-scale climatology of precipitation amounts from thunderstorms is developed by analysis of amounts from individual storms for 220 stations in the conterminous United States for the period 1948-1977. The probability of having a thunderstorm without rainfall is assessed for each station (gamma distribution)
