Moline - Extreme Daily Precipitation for Each Year





This page lists the biggest rainstorms or snowstorms of the year in Moline, Illinois along with the date they occurred. The information answers questions like: When was the last time more than five inches of precipitation landed on Moline in a single day? What was the rainiest day of 2019?

This page gives the highest daily precipitation for each year in Moline 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 1901. During that time the heaviest downpour measured for a single day was 6.21 inches (157.7 millimetres) on September 13, 1961.

Since 1944 the precipitation extremes were observed at Quad City International Airport. Before then, the weather station was across the Mississippi River from Moline in downtown Davenport.
