The present study aims to present the atmospheric precipitation regime for the western part of Romania, mainly the area located in the Mureş and Banat plains. Relying on the amounts of water gauged at the weather stations and substations located in the fork plain lying between the White Criş and the Danube valleys and which were intermittently operational during the period from 1950 to 2020, a study regarding the areal distribution and time variation of the main parameters of rainfall has been made. A display is made of the main characteristic features of the annual mass curve, the rainfall periodicity and randomness, the maximum rainfall in 24, 48 and 72 hours and the snow cover. The data reduction and validation were done by keeping a close eye on the specific weather phenomena and by analysing the synoptic situation for the most important weather events. The characteristic parameters of the pluviometric regime in the Mures and Banat Plains, which were analysed in this paper, can constitute basic materials for the design of hydro-ameliorative systems, for the construction of irrigation systems or to combat excess moisture, all of which are an important component of the development agriculture in the western part of Romania.
