Default Sunniest Midwest Cities

I think Kansas City would be close to Minneapolis in sunshine. The Great Plains side of the Midwest is sunnier than the Great Lakes side.

Probably Rapid City. It's on the far west edge of the Midwest, in a very dry climate. Southwestern Kansas is also very dry.

I think of Denver as mid-weset and they are famous for their sunny days. Am I in trouble?

I think you got Midwest and Mountain West mixed up! Someone told me Madison, Wisconsin is unusually sunny... anyone else heard this?

Eastern Colorado is flat, and therefore I think if it geographically as the mid-west. For me the mountain west starts at Rockies.

Ooops, I'm digging a deeper hole.

I'm inclined to guess Wichita, Kansas. It doesn't get a whole lot of rainfall out on the plains, and the state of Kansas is known for its sunflowers.

True. Omaha and Sioux Falls are also pretty dry.

The driest part of the Midwest is west of the 100th meridian (western ND, SD, NE, and KS).
