Last year, we kicked off October with 11 straight days of rain.
This year, things couldn’t have begun on a more different note.
With no rain expected until Friday, the first 11 days of the month will go down as completely dry—Seattle’s driest start to October since 1991, when rain held off until the 16th of the month. In addition, the lack of any moisture today means that at day’s end, we’ll have only seen .03 inches of precipitation since July 23—making for the driest 80 days on record.
Soak it up now, because by this weekend, we’ll be drenched.
