Winnipeg - Extreme Daily Precipitation for Each Year





This page lists the heaviest rainstorms or snowstorms of each year in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada. The information answers questions like: When was the last time Winnipeg got more than 50 millimetres of precipitation in a single day? What was the heaviest rainfall of 2019?

The list gives the highest daily precipitation for each year in Winnipeg and the date that it happened. A date with a plus sign beside it means the same amount of moisture also fell on at least one other day earlier that year.

These records go back to 1873. During that time the heaviest downpour measured for a single day was 152.4 millimetres (6.0 inches) on June 26, 1901.

Since 1939 the precipitation extremes were observed at Winnipeg International Airport. Before then, the weather station was at the University of Manitoba campus in Winnipeg.
