    Across the world, some locations see incredible amounts of rainfall each year. Most of the major U.S. cities that see higher rain amounts are located in the Southeast.

    "There are a lot of sources for moisture there," said Accuweather.com Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski. "With the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean, and the Atlantic Ocean."

    "It's also warm year round for those locations," he added.

    These conditions come together to create ample rainfall amounts that create these large rain totals.
