The averages of the 12 months were determined and the sequences of months with rain above and below average (designated as A and B) respectively studied. It is found that an empirical&nbsp; relationship of the form log F=nR+S (where R and S are constants) exists between <em>n</em> the length of&nbsp; the run or sequence and <em>F </em>the cumulative frequency of runs of length <em>n</em> and more.</p> <p>After performing the contingency&nbsp; test&nbsp; for&nbsp; the independence of&nbsp; the nature of consecutive months an approach based on the theory of probability is made and a justification for the observed logarithmic relation obtained.</p>}, number={3}, journal={MAUSAM}, author={SRINIVASAN, T.
