Today turned out to be a typical Seattle day! It's overcast with mild temperatures...
A and B) are both fantastic examples of why everyone believes that it rains SO much in Seattle! I'll let you in on a little secret
Seattle only gets an average annual rainfall of 36-38 inches, and this ranks 44th among US major cities! We just want you to think that...so you don't move here and over crowd us
jk...we just have a lot of clouds, and the rainfall we do get is light, but it likes to stay around for a while
For example, in the winter of 2008/2009 Seattle had a rainy day streak of 24 days...our record however is 33 set back in...then there is this...in the winter of 1998/1999, we had rain 90 out of 120 days...just to put that in perspective, that is rain 2 of every 3 days!! With that said...there is a reason we are called the "Emerald City"
