Our Seattle Dry Spell Continues...
Can u believe this? No complaints from me.....And please no comments from the peanut gallery of rain lovers......

Today We have a few random showers around western Washington early today but keep in mind most areas across western Washington from the Canadian border to Oregon will stay dry. However, there is still a chance we could see some wet spots later today. The best chance for some showers later today will be at the coast and over the central Puget Sound region in the Puget Sound Convergence Zone.

Dry Stretch Record If the showers miss Sea-Tac then we will tie the record for the most consecutive dry days for the months of May and June. Tuesday was the 28th straight dry day at Sea-Tac. We are now 2nd on the list for May and June dry spells. The longest dry stretch in May and June is 29 days and if we stay dry today that will be day 29. The longest stretch of dry weather at Sea-Tac for any period is 51 days. This occurred in July and August of 1951.

Extended If the convergence zone sets up today it may linger into Thursday morning then a weak area of high pressure will be with us for a mainly dry afternoon with more sunshine. With a little bit of luck this drier weather could last into Friday. A trough of low pressure will move over the region for the weekend bringing an even better chance for some rain showers.

Aren't you the cutest weatherman around. Glad to see someone happy for a dry spell. After floods here in April, we've had clear, over 95 degree days for over 6 weeks. This swamp land needs weekly rain or our houses crack down the middle.
Enjoy yourself!
