      northern Illinois stations exhibited the greatest increases in variability during the later period. When considering summer precipitation totals from all nine stations, 50 percent of all extreme summer precipitation totals (a station experiencing one of its five wettest or driest summers) were found to have occurred since   Extreme precipitation events have produced more rain and become more common since the s in many regions of the world, including much of the United States. In the U.S., the Midwest and Northeast have seen the strongest increases in heavy precipitation events. Scientists expect these trends to continue as the planet continues to warm.

        The Italian city of Venice is prone to frequent flooding because it has sunk five inches over the last century, but it is also grappling with a new challenge: sea-level rise, caused by climate. Haiti - Haiti - Climate: Haiti has a warm, humid tropical climate characterized by diurnal temperature variations that are greater than the annual variations; temperatures are modified by elevation. Average temperatures range from the high 70s F (about 25 °C) in January and February to the mids F (about 30 °C) in July and August. The village of Kenscoff, at some 4, feet (1, metres.

      The tables below give monthly averages for rainfall plus snowfall during May at cities in Illinois. Each place has a total for the amount of precipitation it usually receives this month. Most sites also have information on the number of days with wet weather. This includes the days when precipitation amounts to inches ( millimetres) or. Where there is a large and high land mass it is common to find rainfall considerable higher on one side that the other Steps: 1. warm moist air moves in 2. air is forced up over land mass and cools causing precipitation on windward/ sea side 3. cool air descends over mountain and causes air to warm, resulting in dry conditions on non-windward side.

Causes for Precipitation Increases in the Hills of Southern Illinois. Jones, Douglas M.A.; Huff, Floyd A.; Changnon, Stanley A., by: 3.

The most recent National Climate Assessment examined the pattern of increased rainfall across the Midwest. They state that Key Message #5 that "Extreme rainfall events and flooding have increased during the last century, and these trends are expected to continue, causing erosion, decline water quality, and negative impacts on transporation.

The percentage of land area experiencing much greater than normal yearly precipitation totals increased between and There has been much year-to-year variability, however. In some years there were no abnormally wet areas, while a few others had abnormally high precipitation totals over 10 percent or more of the contiguous 48 states.

Precipitation is moisture falling to the ground in the form of rain, snow or ice. Mountains have two major effects called the orographic effect, which causes clouds and precipitation to form on one side of the mountain, and the rain shadow effect, which is a drier area on the opposite side of the mountain.

Cloud. Missing values are not included in the precipitation totals; therefore, the totals shown may be less than the actual amounts. Some data collected during cold weather may be affected by snow, and errors in water-equivalent values may result. More information about the quality of real-time data is available.

High-resolution precipitation maps based on National Weather Service radar-estimated precipitation, adjusted using available rain gauge data. This results in 4 km (or mile) resolution maps of precipitation. These are typically updated by p.m.

What causes precipitation (rain and snow). Precipitation forms when cloud droplets (or ice particles) in clouds grow and combine to become so large that their fall speed exceeds the updraft speed in the cloud, and they then fall out of the cloud.

If these large water drops or ice particles do not re-evaporate as they fall farther below the cloud, they reach the ground as precipitation. The weather here in Southern Illinois is more stable and mild than the majority of Illinois which makes the Shawnee Forest, the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail, and other major tourist attractions in this region the perfect vacation from the harsh winters found in Central and Northern Illinois.

Southern Illinois Climate. Hatching represents areas where the majority of climate models indicate a statistically significant change. Spring precipitation in Illinois is projected to increase in the range of 10–20% by These increases are part of a large area of projected increases across the northern United States.

Source: CICS-NC, NOAA NCEI, and NEMAC. Southern Illinois (also known as "Little Egypt") is the southern third of the state of southern part of Illinois has a unique cultural and regional history. Part of downstate Illinois, the Southern Illinois region is bordered by the two most voluminous rivers in the United States: the Mississippi River and its connecting Missouri River to the west, and the Ohio River to the east.

Precipitation does not fall in the same amounts throughout the world, in a country, or even in a city. Here in Georgia, USA, it rains fairly evenly all during the year, around inches ( centimeters (cm)) per year. Summer thunderstorms may deliver an inch or more of rain on one suburb while leaving another area dry a few miles away.

Heavy precipitation events in most parts of the United States have increased in both intensity and frequency since (high confidence).There are important regional differences in trends, with the largest increases occurring in the northeastern United States (high confidence).In particular, mesoscale convective systems (organized clusters of thunderstorms)—the main mechanism for warm.

Causes of Landslides. While landslides are considered naturally occurring disasters, human-induced changes in the environment have recently caused their upsurge. Although the causes of landslides are wide ranging, they have 2 aspects in common; they are driven by forces of gravity and result from failure of soil and rock materials that constitute the hill slope.

Precipitation, all liquid and solid water particles that fall from clouds and reach the ground. These particles include drizzle, rain, snow, snow pellets, ice crystals, and hail. (This article contains a brief treatment of precipitation.

The westerlies or the prevailing westerlies are the prevailing winds in the middle latitudes (i.e. between 35 and 65 degrees latitude), which blow in areas poleward of the high pressure area known as the subtropical ridge in the horse latitudes.

These prevailing winds blow from the west to the east, and steer extra-tropical cyclones in this general direction. Weather history for places in Illinois.
