30 year (1981 - 2010) annual average duration of consecutive dry and wet days for the Conterminous United States and District of Columbia

This metadata record describes the annual average duration of consecutive wet and dry events during the 30-year period 1981–2010 for the conterminous United States. A wet event is defined as a period when the number of consecutive days with precipitation equals or exceeds 1 millimeter. A dry event is defined as a period when the number of consecutive days with precipitation equals 0 mill
