Abstract

The AA. examined the distribution of extreme daily precipitations events in relation to weather conditions, in the county of Nordland. Precipitation data included 88 weather stations and cover the period January 1964 - March 2002. Over this period, extreme precipitations took 2 forms : frontal precipitation (associated with a warm or cold front) and warm sector precipitation (associated with the air masses between 2 fronts). The analyses show that 57% of the extreme daily precipitation situations were classified as warm sector precipitation. It may be important to re-evaluate the forecasting criteria for heavy rain in north Norway
