Publication summary: 

In Hawai'i precipitation is crucial for freshwater supply and reliable projections of future precipitation changes, which may alter the frequency of extreme rain events and flash floods, are needed for the water resource and risk management. A statistical downscaling model was developed from the relationships between the synoptic weather patterns and heavy rainfall events (daily rainfall >the 90th percentile) at 12 stations over the Hawaiian Islands for wet season months (November to April).
