Short summary
Three hourly assimilated precipitation series with 0.1 deg. are used to analyze the features and trends of extreme precipitation in Beijing, China. The results show that: (1) the local climate and topography are two main factors influencing the spatial distributions of precipitation; (2) areas with greater precipitation threshold may have shorter precipitation days; (3) extreme precipitation amount (48% of precipitation) concentrated on urban areas and mountain area within only 5 to 7 days.
