Rain record set; Halloween tricksters will get wet

Hey, kids:  You may want to work up Halloween costumes that include boots and a parka.

Not only did the Seattle area set a rain record on Tuesday, but we’re going to get wetter as the day goes on.

“We could get about another third of an inch of rain by about 8 p.m.,” said Andy Haner of the Weather Service.

Seattle-Tacoma International Airport recorded 1.36 inches of rain Tuesday, besting the old record of .87 inches set in 1997.

Expect more showers Thursday, at least in the morning, but the chance of a glimpse of sun in the afternoon. Friday is looking dry, before showers come back into the picture.

By now, the dry streak that began in late July and continued into this month may be just a memory.  Consider this bit of weather trivia: Even though the first 11 days of October were dry, we’ve had 6.14 inches of rain since then, compared to a normal total of 3.48 inches for the entire month.
