Precipitation amount per day

Depending on the season and the location of a country, the wind brings a varying amount of water with it. As a rule, the water evaporating in the oceans is absorbed and then transported inland. The greatest amount of rain (hail or dew are also forms of precipitation) in France occurs in November, when about 2.5 liters per square meter fall per day. In Niue, the average amount of precipitation ranges from zero liters per day in April to 15.8 in November. However, these are average values. If you consider that there are only zero rainy days in Niue in November, each of them accounts for about zero liters.
