Precipitation climatology over southern Zhejiang, northern Fujian and eastern Jiangxi (ZFJ) of China is documented through
the analysis of observational precipitation data and NCEP Reanalysis data from 1971 to 2013. Annual precipitation amount
in ZFJ is similar to that over Jiang-Huai (JH), where Meiyu front torrential rainfall usually occurs. The analysis of monthly
mean data reveals maximum rainfall amount in June over ZFJ. The analysis of 3 ten-day mean data in June shows the maximum
rainfall over ZFJ in the 2nd ten days associated with transport of water vapor by southwesterly winds in the lower troposphere.
The 2nd ten days are the transition from cyclonic circulation anomaly at the east of ZFJ in the 1st ten days to anticyclonic
circulation anomaly in the 3rd ten days in the lower troposphere and from westerly anomaly across ZFJ in the 1st ten days to
easterly anomaly in the 3rd ten days in the upper troposphere. The time series of rainfall amount averaged over ZFJ in the 2nd
ten days reveals the 7 strong rainfall years (over the mean plus standard deviation). The strong rainfall years show an increasing
decadal trend. The rainfall in the 2nd ten days over ZFJ for the strong rainfall years is associated with enhanced southwesterly
winds in the lower troposphere and strengthened westerly winds in the upper troposphere. The rainfall in the 2nd ten days over
ZFJ for the weak rainfall years is related to the suppressed southwesterly winds in the lower troposphere.
