AB - <p>Monthly rainfall over a period of 60 years (1891-1950) in Rayalaseema has been analysed. 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 relationship of the form log F=nR+S (where R and S are constants) exists between <em>n</em> the length of 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 test for the independence of 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>
