This report gives a technical description of what is briefly known as the KNMI Rainfall (or Weather) Generators for the Rhine and Meuse basins. These rainfall generators form part of the GRADE system for respectively the rivers Rhine and Meuse. GRADE stands for Generator of Rainfall and Discharge Extremes and is a collective development of Rijkswaterstaat, Deltares and KNMI. The KNMI rainfall generators are not single programs but are sets of programs that altogether form what we call ‘the rainfall generators’.
