The aim of this study is to quantify local-scale precipitation patterns in 3 major watersheds in the southeast United States : the Yazoo River watershed, the Savannah River watershed, and the Everglades/Lake Okeechobee drainage basin, each of which is unique regarding land-use type, population distribution, and general meteorological conditions. Additionally, each watershed exhibits unique mesoscale forcing mechanisms. Radar-derived precipitation estimates from 1996-2006 are used for analysis. Results of the study show a clear separation between maximum warm-season precipitation depth and frequency over southern Florida. Additionally, this study shows that radar derived multisensor precipitation estimates are a viable data source for analyzing spatial and temporal precipitation patterns for the purposes of water resources research
