From the 2014 US Climate Assessment:
The Northeast has experienced a greater recent increase in extreme precipitation than any other region in the United States; between 1958 and 2010, the Northeast saw more than a 70% increase in the amount of precipitation falling in very heavy events (defined as the heaviest 1% of all daily events)
The White House team picked the crossover year of 1958 to start their graph. Heavy precipitation events in the Northeast declined from 1895 to 1958, and then started back up again. There has been no long term trend.
This level of fraud and malfeasance is quite spectacular.
