In this work, the rain model for Vidarbha, an area which is prone to drought - is investigated based on four methods. These methods are: The Time Series method, The Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) method, the Artificial Neural Network (ANN) method, and The Root Mean Square (RMS) method.

Plots are made for rain amounts month-wise for June, July, August, September, and the total amount. This is followed by the frequency analysis of the total rain amount.

The predicted rain amount for this area is taken as the average result obtained by each of these methods.
