Didn’t take much rain to end a dry spell

Red Square on the University of Washington campus got a sprinkling of rain overnight and early Monday morning. The Seattle area came up a few days short of breaking a dry spell record.

It didn’t take much to end Seattle’s almost record-breaking dry spell: The National Weather Service says showers early Monday morning and afternoon dropped two-hundredths of an inch in at Sea-Tac Airport.

Everett and areas east may have gotten as much as a quarter of an inch overnight, though, according to NWS meteorologist Jay Albrecht. But the dry ground must have sucked it up fast.

“By the time I woke up, I didn’t even see that anything was wet,” said Albrecht, who lives in Everett.

The short showers aren’t signs that summer is over according to NWS. Warm, dry weather is forecast for the rest of the week.
