A push of marine air Sunday night and into Monday may be all that stands in the way of a record dry streak for Seattle.
Weather Service meteorologist Johnny Burg said the system still shaping up has about a 50 to 60 percent chance of producing measurable rain at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, where Seattle’s official weather readings have been kept since 1945.
Monday would be the 50th straight dry day at Sea-Tac. The record, 51, was set in 1951.
Prior to 1945, official Seattle data, dating back to 1894, was collected downtown at the Federal Building, where the longest dry streak, 48 days, was set in 1922.
