SEATTLE -- It seems like mother nature is setting record after record.
Q13 News Chief Meteorologist Walter Kelley says we've had 153 days of rain since Oct. 1.
Thursday’s rain totals for SeaTac reached nearly 1/2 an inch of rain (0.44″). And because of all the heavy rain we saw a Flood Advisory for streams and creeks running high.
Q13 News Meteorologist M.J. McDermott went back to check the satellite at the peak of Thursday's thunderstorms -- which have slowly come to an end -- and found this.
"Crazy thunderstorms yesterday. This is the radar from about 4:40 p.m. We hardly ever see purple on the radar! That indicates very heavy rain! Thurston County was a bull's eye with the storm. 2,500 lightning strikes with the storm."
