This paper reviews rainfall data obtained by the second author in the course of research for his MRes dissertation. Comparisons are made between information from Sistan and Balochistan, and with other published data from Oman, which are seen to follow a similar monthly distribution. Statistical analysis of the data indicates that the log-normal distribution is generally suitable for representing the annual totals of rainfall, but that the monthly totals are better represented using the Gumbel extreme value distribution. It is indicated that the monthly data are relevant to water resources considerations, and it is recommended that for flood alleviation purposes more frequent data from autographic or recording rain gauges should be sought.
