The goal of this research was to understand how the El Niño-Southern Oscillation influences hourly precipitation characteristics across the Southeast. The El Niño-Southern Oscillation is known to influence season precipitation anomalies, which are usually expressed in deviations (in totals, usually monthly or seasonal) from normal. To date, no research has investigated how a suite of precipitation characteristics are influenced by the El Niño-Southern Oscillation.
