Mobile, Alabama is the rainiest city in the US averaging 66 inches a year.
Ketchikan, Alaska averages around 152 inches of rainfall yearly. There is also a place in Hawaii that beats that. There are plenty of places even in the continental US with more than 60 inches a year so I'd say keep looking.
It is near Forks, WA, on the indian reservation just north of La Push, WA with over 108 inches of rain
It depends on your restrictions for what qualifies as rainiest. The categories I found included things like: rainiest, wettest, cloudiest, most precipitation, most rainy days, most rainfall, 30 year average (this yr. to that yr.). In others words there are many many ways to measure rainfall and precipitation (snow is also precipitation). The reason I happened upon this question is because my wife is a HUGE fan of Twilight and we are thinking about going to Forks. So turns out the Olympic Pennisula ranks very high for annual rainfal and is definitely one of the cloudiest plances in the US. So it would be perfect for vampires because who wants to live in a rainy place but the Cullens need the clouds.
Mt Waialeale, Hawaii has an annual 400+ unches a year beat that scrubs!
