A novel method to develop continuous rainfall series for urban drainage system design and analysis is proposed, evaluated and demonstrated. The method is used to stochastically replicate historical rain series statistically as well as climate project rain series to represent specific climate scenarios and projection times. Continuous climate projected rainfall series are a crucial necessity for designing complex drainage systems and climate adaption solutions robustly for future loading as well as evaluating impacts of climate changes on the urban hydrological cycle.
