Average Yearly Rainfall in Florida





The tables below give annual averages for rainfall at dozens of cities in Florida.

Each place has a total for the amount of precipitation it usually receives in a year. Most locations also have information on the number of days with wet weather. That includes the days when precipitation amounts to 0.01 inches (0.25 millimetres) or more.

The annual precipitation totals are averages based on weather data collected from 1991 to 2020 for the US National Centers for Environmental Information.
