A paper published in the peer reviewed journal Nature Climate Change studied precipitation in the US since 1940.

Has the frequency of ‘extreme weather events’ changed with climate warming over the last century? Using hourly precipitation records from thirteen sites, this study finds no evidence for significant changes in mean ‘storminess’ across the United States.
Model predictions are often disproved when real world data is examined.
