SEATTLE We are on track to be the wettest September on record for SeaTac with almost 6 inches of rain by midnight tonight.The previous record is 5.95″ back in 1978. It’s already the wettest September on record for Olympia, with almost 8 inches of rain and more on the way today.

The winds are still whipping out there, but they’ve calmed down from overnight.  It’s chilly — highs today upper 50s to near 60. Oh yeah, we’re also getting some thunderstorms today.

Tomorrow, showers and a chance of thunderstorms continue, but the winds will be calmer.  Wednesday, we’ll have a few showers with highs cooler, mid-to-upper 50s. Thursday & Friday look dry and warmer — back into the 60s.

It looks like rain returns this weekend, overnight Saturday into Sunday, but it’s too early to pinpoint this.
