                         much smaller subset of climatic variables, preserving the 
                         information associated with extreme meteorological events. A 
                         decision tree algorithm is used as a model to identify the 
                         precipitation severity. The method is tested with the events at 
                         Apr/2009 (Rio de Janeiro city) and at Jan/2011 (Nova Friburgo 
                         city). In both cases, our results show a good local analysis for
