In this paper, we analyze the inverse statistics of rainfall for 12 regions from 1973 to 2014. We obtain a probability density function f(x) of daily rainfall x, and of the first passage time for a given . Lastly, we derive the relation between and , i.e., the averaged value of . The analyses result in the x and have stretched exponential distributions. Also, has the form of a stretched exponential function. We derive the shape parameter of the distribution, and analyze the characteristics of 12 regional rainfalls.
