Burlington - Extreme Daily Precipitation for Each Year





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

The list gives the highest daily precipitation for each year in Burlington 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 1884 with just a few years missing data. During that time the heaviest downpour measured for a single day was 4.19 inches (106.4 millimetres) on October 6, 1932.

Since 1941 the precipitation extremes were observed at Burlington International Airport. Before then, the weather station was near downtown Burlington.
