Fact: Portland & Seattle Not Even Top 3 Rainiest Cities
While no one disagrees Seattle gets tons of rain, we were shocked to find out neither Portland nor Seattle are in the top three cities for rain. Washington state doesn't even make the top seven! We even got beat by Pittsburgh!
With Seattle measuring 149 days a year of rain, it surprisingly ranks eighth. So what cities have more cloudy days? Pittsburgh, PA at 151, followed by Burlington, Cleveland and Portland. Taking the lead for most rainy days in a year are Buffalo and Rochester, NY and Honolulu, HI at 170 days of rain -- nearly half the year.
