The success with which storm rainfall observations expressed in terms of local mean annual rainfall (percentals) can be represented by a high-degree polynomial in latitude and longitude of the observation points is tested first on the basis of statistical parameters of best fit and then by visual comparison of isopercental maps derived from the function with those plotted by interpolation among the observations for two storms.
