Is 500mm of rain a month a lot of rain?

    Yes. That's 6000 mm  a year. That is nearly 2000 mm more than the average rainfall in the wettest town in Australia, Tully in tropical far north Queensland.

    Yes. It is a wetter than normal November in Hilo, Hawaii which is the wettest month in the wettest place by far in the USA. I live in Las Vegas, a desert city. 500mm is about 5 years worth of rain.

    Yes, over 18 inches/month is a lot, esp in my state
