Clouds and Precipitation in the Southern HIPLEX Region

Donald R. Haragan


Climatological analyses of the space and time distribution of clouds and precipitation were prepared for the HIPLEX southern region. Results include the frequency of rain periods, the distribution of rainfall amounts during a rain period, the duration of rain periods and the variation of precipitation based on 7-day running means during the rainy season. Patterns of clouds and precipitation which characterize the HIPLEX southern region and meso-synoptic events responsible for precipitation are identified.
