Seattle Had Wettest Fall-Winter-Spring on Record
SEATTLE (AP) — After three hours on the first day of June, the record was broken for the wettest October through June since record-keeping began in 1895.
The Seattle Times reported Thursday that even if it didn't rain at all the rest of the month, the National Weather Service says the 47.24 inches of rain recorded in the past eight months is the most seen through a rainy season in recent history.
National Weather Service meteorologist Gary Schneider says the prior record for the period was set last year with 47.23 inches.
Seattle also broke the October-through-April rainfall record.
The weather service says there have been 95 days with measurable rain at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport this year. That's three days short of the 1961 record through June 1.
