Jacksonville - Extreme Daily Rainfall for Each Year





This page lists the heaviest rainfalls and wettest days of each year in Jacksonville, Florida. The information answers questions like: Does Jacksonville often get more than five inches of rain in a single day? What was the heaviest rainfall of 2019?

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

These records go back to 1872 with a few years missing data. During that time the heaviest downpour measured for a single day was 9.82 inches (249.4 millimetres) on September 26, 1894.

Since 1945 the rainfall extremes were observed at Naval Air Station Jacksonville. Before then, the weather station was in the city's downtown.
