Seattle has tied its record of 29 days without measurable precipitation. But, because weather records are based on standard time, and we're now using daylight saving time, one a.m. is the magic time. That's why at one a.m. Thursday morning, we officially tied the rrecord set in 1982 of 29 consecutive days of no measurable rainfall. And that's why we need to stay dry at SEATAC airport until one a.m. Friday to officially break the record. This photo was made last evening about 8 p.m., and as you can see above there were clouds in the sky last night. And so, will we turn 30 and set a new record? We'll see.
