Description: A simple simulation model to predict rainfall for individual storms in central Arkansas is described. Output includes frequency distribution tables for days between storms and for storm size classes; a storm summary by day number (January 1 = 1 and December 31 = 365) and rainfall amount; and an annual storm summary that includes monthly values for rainfall and number of storms. The model should be adaptable to other areas where 10 or more years of rainfall records are available.
Keywords: Computer models, model studies, simulation analysis
