Fig. D1. Weighted average intensity (A) and maximum intensity (B), as a function of rainfall event size (n = 81). Full, striped and dotted lines represent linear regression fits for all the events, summer events and winter events, respectively. Rainfall was measured at 20-min intervals by a tipping-bucket rain gauge (20112014). Rainfall event size was determined as the sum of all 20-min rainy intervals that were not separated from the next one by more than 24 hours. Intensity was calculated as the volume-weighted average of all the 20-min intervals corresponding to the event. Maximum intensity corresponded to the highest recorded value of all 20-min intervals of the event.
