Seattle dry streak ends at 48 days, 2nd longest

Not too many people are complaining in typically soggy Seattle, but the city is on a surprising run of dry weather. The gauge at Sea-Tac Airport has gone to the end of August without a drop of rain and the National Weather Service says if it stays that way through Friday as expected, it'll break the record of .01 inches of precipitation, which has happened just three times in the city since 1891.

SEATTLE >> A rain shower Sunday night in Seattle dropped the first measurable moisture since July 23 at Sea-Tac Airport. That ended the dry stretch at 48 days, the second-longest on record.

The record is 51 days set in the summer of 1951.

The National Weather Service says the showers won’t last long. Warm dry weather is forecast for Western Washington for the rest of the week.
