Georgia has received an unusually large amount of rain so far this year. The graphic below allows you to compare the amount of precipitation in the 50 most populated cities in the United States. The precipitation totals rely on data from the National Climatic Data Center at NOAA and are current as of June 30, 2013.

Select cities from the two dropdown menus to compare their precipitation data. Watch to see the graduated cylinders fill up with water to the amount of precipitation received.
