We studied the influence of weather types on the stochastic structure of the intense rainfall events. We used hourly rainfall depths from three rain recorders in Evinos River basin while the corresponding weather types were determined based on classification by Maheras (1982). Initially, we calculated the frequency of occurrence of intense rainfall events for each weather type. Also, we calculated the statistics of the rainfall event characteristics (duration, the hourly and the total rainfall depth), including the autocorrelation and cross correlation functions of hourly depths. To detect statistically significant differences between event characteristics for different weather types, we applied various statistical tests and analysis of variance.
