The multiplicative approach to constructing numerical stochastic models of spatial and spatial-temporal fields of daily liquid precipitation sums on a regular grid is considered. The approach involves independent simulation of precipitation indicator fields with a given correlation function and probabilities of precipitation and fields of precipitation sums with the corresponding correlation function and one-dimensional distribution. The final field is the product of these fields. Verification results for the model on studying properties of statistical characteristics of extreme precipitations are presented.
