Enjoy the intermittent rain while in lasts. During the fall, winter, and early spring it often times can rain for whole days. I can at least remember two weeks from this time period last year where it just rained for the entire week.

Umm you must have forgotten the fall and the winter where it rained for like weeks straight. Summer rains in the southeast are typically short lived like this though.

My memory is bad so I could be wrong...
I've been in the interior Southeast most of my life. This is how I remember it too. It may stay overcast for days and days at a time, but I don't remember us getting non-stop rain for days and days at a time, unless its a tropical system that stalls out.

I remember having days even in late August or early June where it would be raining nonstop the entire day.

Atlanta averages 49.9 inches of rain a year, more than mid Atlantic cities like Philly, DC, Baltimore and Virginia Beach. The only cities on this list ahead of Atlanta are Orlando, Jacksonville, Miami, Birmingham, New Orleans, Houston, and oddly enough New York City... by only .1 inch. 12 inches more than Seattle BTW.

Lived in London two years. It always felt like it had just rained, the streets and sidewalks were wet most of the time. But rare was a really strong rain that would soak you deeply, It was just an incessant mist or a little drizzle that you could still function outdoors without getting totally drenched. Days with hours of sunshine were celebrated, they felt few and far between.

I think Seattle is more like that.

I’m more so referring to the duration of time it rains. I agree, it rains hard and perhaps even frequently. But even if it’s forecasted to rain for a week straight, it seems like it comes and goes in less than 30mins to an hour. Even if it’s more than once a day, it always seems to be in modest increments. Oddly enough, it actually just happened as it type this.

Exactly. I recall many a time when we've had many hours (and days) of continuous rain.

Truth...this is one of my favorite weather shots:



I live just above the 75 icon in the middle. We barely got a drop of rain as that storm blew west to east.

Well, I am thankful it doesn't rain incessantly for days on end. Who wants that?
