Yearly Precipitation

Most Humid Subtropical climates receive about 48 inches of rain each year. It rains throughout the year, no matter what season. And because of the usually hot weather, the air is always very humid, and they receive lots of precipitation. Humid Subtropical climates often have big storms such as tornadoes, and hurricanes.
