Antarctica is actually considered to be the world’s largest desert as it only receives less than 10 inches of precipitation annually. So it’s the coldest, driest, and also the windiest continent on the planet.
To be more specific, the American McMurdo station in Antarctica receives 202.5 mm, 7.9 inches, of rainfall each year. The station is located on the coast of Antarctica, and the rainfall it receives is not equal to what inland Antarctica receives. This number, however, seems to be a fairly accurate representation of the annual rainfall the continent can receive.
