Abstract. This paper deals with the seasonality of hydro-
climatic extremes and with the problem of accounting for
their non-homogeneous character in determining the design
value. To this aim we devise a simple stochastic experiment
in which extremes are produced by a non-homogeneous ex-
treme value generation process. The design values are esti-
mated in closed analytical form both in a peak over thresh-
