Based on the surface runoff, temperature and precipitation data over the last 50 years from eight representative rivers in Xinjiang, using Mann-Kendall trend and jump detection method, the paper investigated the long-term trend and jump point of time series, the surface runoff, mean annual temperature and annual precipitation. Meanwhile, the paper analyzed the relationship between runoff and temperature and precipitation, and the flood frequency and peak flow. Affected by temperature and precipitation variation, river runoff had changed both inter-annually and intra-annually. Flood frequency and peak flow increased all over Xinjiang. Climate warming has had an effect on the regional hydrological cycle
