Here Comes the Rain Again is probably the most favorite song in these 10 cities with the most rainy days in the world. Their citizens surely can sing it all year long. An umbrella is a must if you’re headed this way, so unless you’re a real pluviophile (a person who loves rain), it would be best to set off somewhere else.
It’s been said that the weather exists so that people would have something to talk about. There are two types of people when it comes to rain: those who love it, and others who hate it. The first simply adore precipitation and say the sound of raindrops against the window pane is an instant stress relief, while the latter loathe the very idea of water drops falling down from the sky. They would certainly hate it if they had to spend a couple of days in these cities. Showers, downpours, occasional drizzle…These cities have it all.
It should be noted that the cities in question aren’t listed according to the average precipitation. They are ranked based on the average rainy, murky days per year. Let’s just say most of them have around 200 rainy days every year (and even more!). However, if the amount of rainfall is what interests you the most, there’s that information, too. After all, it’s important to know if you’ll be a little damp, or completely soaked when you head in that direction.
There are some similar interesting facts waiting for you, such as the rainiest place on Earth according to annual rainfall. Its name means “land of the clouds”, and with 11,873 mm (467 in) of rain every year it is often called the wettest place on the planet, too.
If you’re a rain lover, head this way. If you dread clouds and getting wet, stay away from these 10 cities with the most rainy days in the world!
