Short summary
A new methodology to obtain design storms for Mediterranean convective episodes is presented, which not only reproduces observed rainfall intensities but also other variables such as temporal pattern, total rainfall volume or the storm duration. The formulation, without using IDF curves, introduces a 2-parameter analytical function and presents an original method to assign the storm return period. Three design storms with similar magnitude but different shapes are derived for each return period.
