 You selected the area Coastal Tributaries North and the topic Climate: Daily Maximum Rainfall - Point Arena 12NNE, 1963-1997  
This is a map of rain gages in the Coastal Tributaries North sub-basin. Displayed in the background are KRIS sub-basins, a mean annual rainfall model, and 1:100,000 scale USGS hydrography. The rainfall model substantially underestimates annual rainfall in some locations, such as the north-central portion of the project area, where the model shows 45 inches but the "Point Arena 12 NNE" gage recorded an average of 68 inches.
