Commonly rainfall models are used by engineers and hydrologists for the civil engineering planning, infrastructure planning, determination of drainage coefficients for catchments area and determination of maximum discharge. The objective of this research is to generate the synthetic sequences of rainfall using Fourier transform and least squares method. The rainfall time series is assumed representing as an accumulation of trend, periodic and stochastic as its components. In this analysis, The Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) is used generate spectrum of rainfall time series. From the spectrum, frequency components of the periodicity of the rainfall involved trend, periodic and stochastic components are derived. The rainfall time series involved trend, periodic and stochastic is assumed as Fourier series. The least squares method is used to predict the components of the rainfall time series. The calculated results of synthetic sequences of the rainfall using Tukey-Coley and Matlab periodograms are compared with observed rainfall time series. The calculated rainfall time series results present the good agreement if compared with observed rainfall time series results.
