SEATTLE - September through November will go into the Seattle record books as the wettest meteorological fall ever!
Meteorological fall runs September 1 through November 30 and during this time Seattle accumulated 19.04 inches of rain, which is 7.21" above average for this time period. That blows away the all time record, thanks to several atmospheric rivers that pounded Western Washington.
Temperatures remained close to average for the fall, but a warmer than average November meant low snowpack in the mountains.
Looking ahead, the weather trends drier than wet the next seven days. However, a much cooler airmass will return starting Thursday. Expect highs in the 40s starting Friday with overnight lows dropping into the 30s.
The next chance for widespread rain is late Friday night into early Saturday. Showers return again late Sunday into Monday for a soggy first half of the day.
Have a great night all! ~Erin Mayovsky, FOX 13 Forecaster
