An application of stochastic process for describing and analyzing the daily rainfall pattern at Aduthurai is presented. A model based on the first-order Markov chain was developed. The model used in this study consists of rainfall occurrence model and rainfall magnitude model. Results of the study suggests that first order Markov chaining with two parameters gamma distributions were found to be adequate to generate daily rainfall sequences at Aduthurai.
