Abstract

The purpose of this study is to identify the synoptic atmospheric environment associated with extreme unseasonable flood events in the southeastern United States. Unseasonable is defined as flood occurrence in the season of lowest flood frequency, and extreme refers to the 10 greatest flood magnitudes within this season over the study period. The results are intended to expand knowledge of climatic conditions associated with unseasonable floods and offer a potential forecasting tool to be used by both flood planners and weather officials alike
