This City’s Had Rain 17 of 21 Days So Far This Month

21 Nov 2017, 1:42 pm

If you think you’ve had a wet November, you probably don’t stack up to the amount of rainy days Seattle, Washington has seen so far this November.

Seattle has seen measurable rain or even snow in 17 of 21 days so far in November, totaling 5.96″ of total precipitation so far in November, which puts that already above the full November average of 5.59″ of rainfall.

In a La Nina year, the Pacific Northwest tends to experience a higher amount of storms, and that’s certainly been the case so far this November. November is also typically the start of the region’s wet season, so none of this is particularly abnormal. But the consistency of the storms has been exceptional, leading to the 17 of 21 day precipitation streak that’s kept Seattle and much of the Northwest grey so much of the month.

The rain isn’t going away any time soon, either. Clouds and rain remain in the Emerald City’s forecast through the rest of the week, including a soggy Thanksgiving. The rain may let up some this weekend and into next week, although there will likely be at least some showers remaining in the forecast.

At least, at this point, it doesn’t appear that Seattle or the Northwest will be dealing with the level of winds that caused widespread power outages early last week.
