Due to an oversight, an incorrect figure in Sears-Collins et al. (2006) was printed as Fig. 8. The correct Fig. 8 is reproduced below.

In addition, after publication, we discovered the similarity of our research with that of a previous study (Wallace 1975). Wallace (1975) examined the diurnal cycles of trace precipitation events across the United States. Thus, their study provides a natural comparison to our diurnal cycles of drizzle occurrence.

Wallace (1975, his Figs. 4 and 9) examined the diurnal cycle in trace precipitation at many stations across the United States. His results are consistent with our results (Sears-Collins et al. 2006, their Figs. 9–10) that show relatively small diurnal cycles at many stations, except for stations along the Texas and Pacific coasts. Unfortunately, we did not compute the diurnal cycle for any stations in the southeast United States, where Wallace (1975) also found large amplitudes in the diurnal cycle.

For much of the United States in both summer and winter, Wallace (1975, his Figs. 4 and 9) observed a morning maximum in trace precipitation—results consistent with ours (Sears-Collins et al. 2006, their Fig. 8).
