How prone is your area to rain on Independence Day?
Looking at the past 15 years of records for 15 of America's major cities, Pittsburgh and Atlanta, top the list for the rainiest July 4 holidays, with seven rainy holidays in the last 15 years.
On the other hand, Los Angeles and San Francisco have not had a single rainy Fourth of July between 1999 and 2013.
The heaviest rainfall recorded among the cities listed occurred in Washington, D.C., in 2001. While Dallas has only ever had one measurable rainfall on July 4 in the past 15 years, but was hit with 1.31 inches of rain in 2006, making it the third heaviest on record.
