After one of the warmest, wettest Januaryies ever – with nearly four inches of rain in Seattle – February starts with more of it.
Last month was the eighth wettest January ever, according to data from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
The normal rainfall in Seattle in January is 5.57 inches, said weather service meteorologist Carly Kovacik.
The average high temperature last month was 47 degrees, above the normal of 43 degrees, she said. The lowest values overnight showed a clearer difference with an average over the month of 43 degrees, a significant warming compared to the normal value of 37 degrees.
Rain is expected for most of Tuesday and is likely to be heavier and more prevalent than Monday, Kovacik said.
On Wednesday we could dry out a bit in the afternoon before a fast-moving weather system accelerates through Wednesday evening through Thursday before clearing for a dry Friday and Saturday, she said
If we’re lucky, we might see some sunburns.
“The forecast has clouds in the lowlands,” she said, “but I’m looking for clear skies.”
I’m sorry folks, but it’s raining again for dinner tonight. And tomorrow.
Hope you like leftovers.
