Orlando - Extreme Daily Rainfall for Each Year





This page lists the heaviest rainfalls and wettest days of each year in Orlando, Florida. The information answers questions like: When was the last time Orlando got more than six inches of rain in a single day? What was the heaviest rainfall of 2018?

This page gives the highest daily precipitation for each year in Orlando 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 precipitation extremes go back to 1894, with data missing for just a few years. Since then the biggest one-day rainstorm recorded in Orlando dropped 8.43 inches (214.1 millimetres) of water on September 16, 1945.

The record rainfalls were measured at Orlando Executive Airport near downtown Orlando, except from 1975 to 1998 when the weather station was at Orlando International Airport.
