Seattle Breaks 122-Year-Old Record For Rain

The wet just won’t quit.  Seattle has soaked up 44.67 inches of rain since October 1, according to the National Weather Service. That makes this October-through-April the wettest such period since record-keeping began in the city in 1895 — and there’s still another week of April left to go. The normal amount of rainfall for the October-through-April period in Seattle is 30.9 inches, according to the service. Why has this particular rainy season been so darn rainy? We haven’t seen many of the cold-weather systems that move quickly through the area and into the mountains.  Instead, “It’s just been a parade

of frontal systems, juicier and warmer than you might expect. They plow into the area and stall,” said Mike McFarland, a meteorologist in the weather service’s Seattle office.  “Not unusually heavy rain — just a lot more rainy days. It’s been a little relentless.”  The deluge is Seattle’s second straight record breaker. From October 2015 through April 2016, 44.52 inches of rain dropped on the city, an amount now only good enough for No. 2 on the all-time list. READ MORE
