Halfway through November, we’re in a bit of a rainfall deficit. With just 1.96 inches in the rain gauge at Sea-Tac so far, we’re received only two-thirds of the Nov. 1-15 average—exactly an inch less than normal for the first part of the month.
Fortunately—or unfortunately for those still drying out from Seattle’s near-record rains in October—we’ll be running a surplus by Thanksgiving, if not sooner.
A much more active weather pattern—promising sopping rains and howling winds—is at our doorstep, with the first soggy system set to move through here on Saturday. Until then, we’ll see a mostly dry day tomorrow, with just a chance of light rain later in the day. However, the made-for-postcard skies that dominated the weather picture today won’t be repeated, as clouds stream in ahead of the front.
