TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - Summer months often mean lots of afternoon thunderstorms and tropical systems. According to NOAA and an analysis from, out of all U.S cities, Tallahassee ranks eighth for the most rainfall during the summer.

While rainfall trends in the Capital City are fairly constant, other parts of the country are seeing an increase in rain.

“It hasn’t been a big trend one way or the other in the last couple of decades here, now that’s because we’ve always been close to the Gulf of Mexico, so global warming and things like that haven’t really affected us like they have other parts of the country which have certainly seen increases in rainfall,” Warning Coordination Meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Tallahassee, Mark Wool, explained.

Climate change, known to make areas like California and the desert southwest drier, also increases the risk for wildfires.
