SEATTLE (AP) – Soggy Seattle has broken another rainfall record.
The National Weather Service says the city measured 44.67 inches (114 centimeters) of rain between October and so far in April.
That makes it the wettest such period since records began in 1895.
Meteorologist Mike McFarland in the service’s Seattle office says it’s the second consecutive year that the city topped the rainfall record for that 7-month period.
With a few days left in in April, the record will likely go higher.
McFarland says cold-weather winter systems typically move through the area with dry breaks in between.
But this winter season has seen back to back weather systems that are wetter and warmer than normal.
The previous record was 44.52 inches (113 centimeters) of rain for the October 2015 to April 2016 period.
