February Showers bring March Flowers

Thanks to climate change global warming the old adage needs be revised, eh?

SEATTLE -- January might usually be a rainy month around here, but it's never been quite this rainy before.
With yet another rainy day on Jan. 31, Seattle has now notched measurable rain on 28 of the 31 days this month -- tying the record for most days in a month with measurable rain with the 28 days of rain in January 2006 and January 1953.

The new year kicked off with a balmy start for the U.S., making January 2020 the fifth warmest January on record. All 48 contiguous states saw above- to much-above-average temperatures last month. January was also quite damp for the Lower 48 and ranked in the wettest third of the 126-year climate record.

Last month, much-above-average wetness was observed across the Pacific Northwest as well as portions of the central and southern U.S. Washington state experienced its fourth-wettest January, while Oklahoma saw its sixth wettest on record.
