Seattle's rain-free streak ended Monday after 48 days without precipitation.

For 14 minutes around 5:00 a.m., the official meter at Sea-Tac International Airport recorded a few sprinkles that amounted to about 0.01 of an inch of rain.

The 48-day-dry-spell is the second longest on record in Seattle. In 1951, Seattle endured 51 days without rain.

The small amount of rain recorded could be all there is in the forecast for a few more days. The remainder of the week shows high temperatures in the upper 70s and low 80s, with only scattered clouds until next weekend.
