Annual Precipitation Records


The 2019 calendar year was abnormally wet for much of the central U.S. Many stations exceeded their record for total annual precipitation. The map and table below shows stations whose most current data in the Global Historical Climatology Network (GHCN) exceeded their record annual precipitation totals for a calendar year. The WBAN and COOP stations below were selected based on their length of record in the GHCN. Values are rounded to the nearest hundredth. Stations with a period of record that began after 1980 were not taken into account.

On the interactive map below, click on a station to view the precipitation totals from this calendar year and the previous two wettest years on record.
