different aspects of the phenomenon, a number of techniques have been previously developed for objective identification of ARs. For example, the technique based on the integrated water vapor (IWV) signature of ARs was developed associated with the availability of high-quality satellite retrievals of IWV over the northeastern Pacific ( Ralph et al. 2004 ; Neiman et al. 2008 ; Wick et al. 2013 ). The technique based on point observations of IWV and surface wind was designed to best take advantage of

extreme precipitation events and how they will change in the future will help enable the precautions needed to protect society from such events, for example, through more accurate forecasts. While it is quite possible that the increasing trend in extreme precipitation events will continue into the future, there is considerable uncertainty ( IPCC 2013 ; Janssen et al. 2014 ). The frequency of extreme precipitation events in the Northeast varies by season, and this frequency has changed over time
