A time series analysis is a valuable tool to get information about analyzed data structures and their components, which provides a good basis for successful future predictions. This information is useful to make decisions for the best management of this resource. The region where the province of Cordoba is located is subject to strong variations in their hydrological cycles. The strong population growth experienced in the recent years in the city of Cordoba and its area of influence (Area of Greater Córdoba) with more than 1.4000.000 inhabitants has resulted in conflicts in the uses of water. During the last decades this area has experienced prolonged droughts and floods. The Suquía River is the most important source of water supply to the City of Córdoba in Argentina. This study deals with the modeling and forecasting of rainfall time series in the area of upper basin of Suquía River. The series analyzed were San Antonio, El Condor, El Cajon and Barrio El Canal Station. The time series models that were proposed for the analysis of each record were ARMA models. The results show that the time series analysis is a tool that offers valuable information on the characteristics pluviographs.
