Tallahassee - Extreme Daily Rainfall for Each Year





This page lists the heaviest rainfalls and wettest days of each year in Tallahassee, Florida. The information answers questions like: When was the last time Tallahassee got more than seven 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 Tallahassee 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 1904, although data are missing for many years prior to 1950. For the years with complete weather observations the heaviest downpour measured for a single day was 8.86 inches (225.0 millimetres) on September 21, 1969.

Since 1941 the rainfall extremes were observed at Tallahassee International Airport. Before then, the weather station was in downtown Tallahassee.
