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

The list gives the highest daily precipitation for each year in Fort Wayne 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.
