Due to a production error, Figs. 1 and 5 were published incorrectly in Livneh et al. (2013). In addition, the third row of Table 3 contained an error and the final coauthor's affiliation and corresponding author address was not accurate. To correct this, the following pages contain the full article as it should have appeared, with all of the above corrections implemented.
The staff of the Journal of Climate regrets any inconvenience these errors may have caused.
