Figure 2: (a) Maximum precipitation (Prcp) volumes by month for each weather station (diamond markers = Thermal-Indio (TI), square markers = Brawley-Calipatria (BC)) and their combined average (dashed line). (b) Comparison of mean evapotranspiration (ETo) by month for each weather station (diamond markers = TI, square markers = BC) and their combined average (dashed line). (c) Monthly comparison of precipitation (Prcp) event days and days having evapotranspiration (ETo) ≤0.21 inches based on the BC weather station dataset (1982–2004). RainEvent (Prcp event) = percent of observations having some amount of Prcp, that is, a Prcp event, ETo ≤0.21 = percent of observations having ETo ≤0.21 inches.
