Four time-series graphs are generated and provide an analysis of recent rainfall with respect to that of recent seasons and the long-term series. MEWS ‘Clickable Map’ for Rainfall Monitoring. Panel a): dekadal (i.e., ~10-daily) precipitation estimates for the selected region from Dec 1999 to the present. Panel b): same as (a) (solid black line) with the addition of the recent short-term average precipitation for the same region (grey dotted line). The blue (red) bars are indicative of estimates that are above (below) the short-term average. Note that the short-term average precipitation data has been smoothed. Panel c): same as (a) for the current year (thick black line), as indicated by the axis labels. Precipitation estimates from previous years are also shown (blue-1 yr from present; magenta- 2 yrs from present; grey-3 yrs from present). Panel d): cumulative dekadal satellite-derived precipitation estimates (solid black line) and the cumulative recent short-term average precipitation (grey dotted line) for the most recent 12-month period in the selected region. The blue (red) bars are indicative of estimates that are above (below) the short-term average.
