Weather.com will display recorded precipitation if you select the monthly display, howver, I find that they are often quite different than what I record.  A brief search for confirming rainfall data on the web seemed to show that while wind speed and temperature were measured at 10 local weather stations (some private and some government run) not one reported rainfall.  It's hard to believe that this is true, so I will assume I'm looking in the wrong place.  The alternative is that rainfall reports are extrapolated from widely dispersed ground gauges or from radar images.  This seems a poor way to do business since rainfall can vary widely from my side of the hill (leeward of the ocean) to points only a short distance away (facing the ocean or on the flats).
