The USCEI integrates a set of climate extremes indicators that measure the fraction of the area of the CONUS experiencing extremes (upper or lower 10th percentile, depending on variable) in monthly mean surface temperature, daily precipitation, and drought and moisture surplus (monthly PDSI).
The USCEI components based on daily precipitation were used to compare the three drought episodes on a finer (daily) temporal scale (Table ES3).
* The US Climate Extremes Index (USCEI), an index that tracks the highest and lowest 10 percent of extremes in temperature, precipitation, drought and tropical cyclones across the contiguous US, was a record-large 44 percent during the March-May period, over twice the average value.
