When is the last time it rained in Seattle?

A 'trace' of rain isn't enough to break our dry spell. Here's how much longer it could last.

SEATTLE — We've had 48 consecutive days without measurable rain at Sea-Tac Airport as of Sunday, one of the longest dry stretches the area has ever seen.

Some areas did receive a trace on Saturday, but it wasn't a measurable amount.

The National Weather Service recorded July 2021 as the fifth driest on record since 1945.

The record dry stretch goes to the summer of 2017 with 55 consecutive days without measurable rain. 

We could cut the streak just short of the record with a better chance of more widespread showers toward the end of the week.
