The purpose of this study was to revise and update the existing Rainfall Intensity- Duration-Frequency (IDF) Curves for the Commonwealth of Kentucky. The nine curves that currently govern Kentucky are based on data from First-Order Weather Stations in and around Kentucky. However, the new curves only utilize data from within the State. The data was gathered from both First Order and Co-operative Weather Stations. In accordance with Bulletin 71, the new curves reflect the climatological zones located within the state, thus producing only four IDF curves.
