I'm looking for a dataset that could allow me to compute, or better give me directly;

  1. How many days per year a city x experiences some rain for more than y hours.
  2. How many days per year a city x experiences some rain for more than z mm of rains at time.

(where x, y and z are specified by the user)

E.g. how many days per year Seattle experiences more than two hours of rain.

All the climate data of US are available on the National Climatic Data Center, under the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). You can get county, city or state based rainfall, wind etc. data of both recent and historical times.
