Publication summary: 

Climate change is predicted to increase high-intensity rainfall frequency in the upper Midwest, but projections are uncertain and vary across climate models. We recommend using "extreme storm transposition" (rather than a probabalisitic, climate model-based approach) to better illustrate possible rainfall change impacts and to help communities identify stormwater-related vulnerabilities and build resilience in the face of climate change.
