SeaTac Airport just hit a record for rainfall on this date as rain keeps falling and snarling traffic around western Washington.
According to the National Weather Service, 0.39 inches of rain fell Thursday by 2 p.m. The old record for this date—set in 1964—was 0.37 inches.
Seattle now at 1.02" of rain for the day. 7th wettest June day on record. Or 2,153rd driest if you're the glass half full type. #wawx— NWS Seattle (@NWSSeattle) June 16, 2017
The rain was also creating headaches—and hassles—for drivers.
