By Patrick – Need to hijack Stephen’s post for a second just to say that we did a full update on all of the snowiest cities in the US and it’s getting tighter near the top We now return to Stephen
Remember that only cities with a population of 100,000 or more, and have stats available on the NWS climate pages, are eligible to be on this list. In all, I am keeping track of precipitation stats for 152 cities in the United States. Of the 152, the top 5 driest and top 5 wettest will be posted here.
Data is from December 12th.
|Driest Major U.S. Cities|
|1||Las Vegas, NV||4.26|
|2||El Paso, TX||6.51|
|Wettest Major U.S. Cities|
|1||San Juan, PR||84.00|
|5||Fort Lauderdale, FL||58.39|
Just for fun, here’s how the top 5 snowiest cities stack up against each other in precipitation amounts.

I’ll try and do a better job of updating these a little more frequently as we’re approaching the end of the year.
Have a great week everyone!
