Stochastic models are discussed for the variation of rainfall intensity at a fixed point in space. First, models are analysed in which storm events arise in a Poisson process, each such event being associated with a period of rainfall intensity is formed by adding the contributions from all storm events. Then similar but more complex models are studied in which storms arise in a Poisson process, each storm giving rise to a cluster of rain cells and each cell being associated with a random period of rain. The main properties of these models are determined analytically.
