Plot Description:

Using long term data, five precipitation bins are constructed such that each bin contributes 20% to the annual precipitation total. Using these 5 bins, an individual year's worth of data is compared. With this comparison, you can say that one's years worth of departures can be explained by these differences in precipitation bins.
