Soggy Seattle Does About-face With Record Dry Streak

SEATTLE (AP) — Just months ago, soggy Seattle clocked the wettest winter on record.

Now, the city has gone in the other extreme: Seattle is now into its longest dry streak since the previous record was set in 1951.

The National Weather Service says as of Tuesday, 52 consecutive dry days have been measured at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

Meteorologist Gary Schneider says there’s no rain in the forecast over the next few days, so the streak is likely to continue.

Nick Bond, Washington state climatologist, says the Pacific Northwest has a Mediterranean climate so the region typically doesn’t get a lot of rain in the summer — but it does get some. He says most of the state had little rain in July and that pattern has continued into August.
