Abstract

Using the 1-min data for 13 years (1993-2005) of rainfall measurements in Penang in the northwestern part of the Malayan Peninsula, we estimate rain occurrence to be ~12% of the year. At the same location during 0.01% of a year, rainfall exceeds 126 mm/h. The 13-year average 1-min rainfall data are analyzed to study the diurnal, monthly, and annual variation of total rain accumulations. The Southern Oscillation values were low in 1993, 1995, and 1998 and the percentage exceedance of rain rates during the La Niña years were higher than El Niño years.
