. 1993 ) used the gamma distribution to transform precipitation series to standardized units. Nevertheless, the frequency distributions of the precipitation series show significant changes that depended on the time scale ( Vicente-Serrano 2006 ). Among the different evaluated models, the Pearson III shows enhanced adaptability to precipitation series at different time scales ( Guttman 1999 ; Vicente-Serrano 2006 ; Quiring 2009 ). Therefore, here we use the algorithm described by Vicente
