We know! It rains in Seattle. Big whoop.
But did this May just feel extra dreary, drippy and gray? It's not in your head. Seattle had its most May rainfall since the 1940s. So if you were born after 1948, this has been the wettest Seattle May of your lifetime.
So far this month, Seattle has recorded 3.79" of rain, making it the wettest May in 74 years, according to the National Weather Service. The wettest May was in 1948 with 4.76" of rain. Record keeping started at Sea-Tac Airport in 1945.
This year is a La Niña year, which typically results in a colder and wetter winter.
