We’ve compiled a list of the 20 rainiest cities in the U.S., ranked from least to most. Read on to discover where you may want to vacation or relocate — or where you want to avoid, depending on your preference.
All mean precipitations are compiled from weather data collected from 1981-2010 and reported on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Centers for Environmental Information.
