In this paper, the structure characteristics of rainfall time series were studied based on the consistency, randomness, trend, and goodness of fit tests. For this purpose, thirty-two climatic stations distributed over Jordan were selected with fifty-two years’ time series. The time series analysis indicates consistent and evidence of randomness in data series at 1 and 5% significance level with the exception of two stations time series. Mann-Kendal trend tests indicates free trend in all the stations at 95% confidence level with the exception of six stations which have a negative trend.
