Seems they are all adjacent to the east of the Rockies, although I did try Alaska first in case snow did not count.

Either east of the Rockies or in the rain shadow of the Cascades or Sierra Nevada (Great Basin states). Also, Alaska has rainforests.

I tried Alaska, too, because the snow is pretty dry. However, I wasn't taking into account that southeastern Alaska is very rainy.

You'd be surprised by the amount of rain Texas gets, especially in the central part. Our annual rainfall is often very similar to the amount in Northwest states, except that we get it in the form of downpours instead of a constant drizzle.
