Abstract: This study investigated the use of the Markov chain-mixed exponential (MCME) model as a means of obtaining synthetic daily precipitation amounts at a site, based on knowledge of the mean annual precipitation of the site. Data for this study were from 25 National Weather Service stations in Idaho. There was a relationship between annual precipitation and some of the parameters in the MCME model, and other parameters could be assumed constant.
