Watch| Seattle has the reputation as the rainiest city, but annual rainfall studies show that the city doesn't even rank in the top ten.
According to the NOAA, the city that gets the most rain is... wait for it... New Orleans, Louisiana. And the city with the second most rainfall is Miami, Florida. Are you surprised?
Following Miami is Birmingham, Memphis, Jacksonville, Orlando, New York, Houston, Atlanta, and Nashville. Seattle came in at number 44 on the list.
The NOAA calculates the average total rainfall by calculating the past 30 years of data and updating it each decade. Present averages include the span from 1981 to 2010.
New Orleans has 62.7 inches of rain a year which makes it the rainiest city in the U.S. but it doesn't make the list of cities with the rainiest days. Rochester, New York takes the first spot with 167 days and Seattle ranks sixth with 149 days of rain.
