Toledo - Extreme Daily Precipitation for Each Year





This page lists the biggest rainstorms or snowstorms of the year in Toledo, Ohio along with the date they occurred. The information answers questions like: When was the last time more than four inches of precipitation landed on Toledo in a single day? What was the rainiest day of 2018?

The list gives the highest daily precipitation for each year in Toledo 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 1871. During that time the heaviest downpour measured for a single day was 5.93 inches (150.6 millimetres) on September 4, 1918.

Since 1955 the precipitation extremes were observed at Toledo Express Airport. From 1940 to 1954 data were collected at Toledo Executive Airport. Before then, the weather station was in downtown Toledo.
