Note: Value in italics and shard for the 5-30 min durations are derived using 1989/2019 Bulletin 70 ratios (X-hr/24-hr), since the ratios are the same for the updated 2019 Bulletin 70 as the old. These were derived because Tables 4 and 5 contained in the ISWS Contract Report 2019-05 "Frequency Distributions of Heavy Precipitation in Illinois-Updated Bulleting 70" did not include them.
