Great changes have occurred in meterology in the last two decades. Formerly, weather data were available for forecasting and climatological analyses only at points - at weather stations. Now there is complete areal coverage in observing the atmosphere, by radar and by weather satellite. Pilot projects are underway to apply these new data, along with a new look at rainfall data, as aids to defining the variation of Probable Maximum Precipitation (PMP) from region to region of the United States more precisely.
