After some technical difficulties (both on my end and on the NWS site), I’m finally able to reveal the top 10 driest major U.S. cities in 2010. It’s a few weeks into 2011, but that’s how it goes sometimes. As a quick reminder, 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, 152 cities in the United States matched the criteria. Precipitation is measured in inches in liquid equivalent.
|Driest Major U.S. Cities|
|1||Las Vegas, NV||5.90|
|2||El Paso, TX||6.67|
|6||Colorado Springs, CO||9.37|
Later this week, I’ll post the wettest major U.S. cities in 2010. Have a great week everyone!
