Today’s heavy rainfall broke the record for the most rain on July 23.

According to the National Weather Service, Seattle received 0.74 inches of rain. The previous record for today was 0.54 inches in 1949.

“We’ve received more rain today than we normally get in the whole month of July,” said National Weather Service Meteorologist Johnny Burg.

There is a chance for thunderstorms until 11 p.m.

Drivers should expect showers and heavy down pour, which could cause minor flooding, Berg said.
