If you're in Emerald City and you've been feeling gloomy of late, you can apparently blame it all on the weather. The city's reputation for wet climes precedes it. But so far in 2020, Seattle weather has been so rainy, it could break records.\nAccording to a Seattle Times report, the city could have a record-tying 28 rainy days in January. And the last time it was this soggy was way back in 1953!\nThe area usually gets about 15 rainy days on average in the first month of the year, but the outpour-days have only doubled.\nIf like us, you're wondering just why Mother Nature has been sending angry, grey clouds our way, we've got the explanation.\nIt's because of an atmospheric river where moisture, the amount of water in the whole of Mississipi River, is being funneled into the Pacific Northwest.\nWhile the phenomenon — "Pineapple Express" sounds fun, it's anything but.\nIt's officially been over 90 days since have had a sunny day.\nEvery day this month, there has been an 80% cloud cover, making it overcast with no chance to bask in the sunlight.\nIt’s raining ... again! The persistency of 🌧 this January is likely to head into the record books: 🔷Today = 24th day this month with measurable rain (0.01” or more)🔷2006 & 1953 hold Jan record for most 🌧 days in a month: 28🔷 Odds are high Jan 2020 ties this record on Fri— Seattle Weather Blog (@KSeattleWeather) January 28, 2020\nIt's not just Emerald City, this continues to be the pattern for much of the Evergreen State.\nFor instance, it was also the wettest month in Washington's Twilight town of Forks.\nHere is the predicted rainfall until the end January. Wettest January on record for Quillayute/Forks ( record 24.02" in 2006 currently 21.50" ). Hoquiam will have the 2nd wettest January. No record for Seattle but we could tie record for most rain days ( 28/2006 & 1953). #wawx pic.twitter.com/tvMpdLzL2V— NWS Seattle (@NWSSeattle) January 25, 2020\nIt looks like you'll have to keep those umbrellas close by for the time being. Perhaps, you can have a Twilight marathon to help these rainy days go by. After all, as the Seattle Weather Blog says, "Somewhere, the vampires are smiling."\nThere's literally a silver lining though.\nThis weather is only expected to last until the end of this month, making our hearts glad that it's almost here.\nOne more Friday rainbow before the sun took center stage #Seattle pic.twitter.com/4QGKK0O0Bs— Dené Miles (@DeneMiles) January 25, 2020\n"Clearing conditions" are expected to start on February 1. There are still going to be showers, but you can expect patches of blue sky, and perhaps some sunshine too?\nEditor's Note: Cover photos used for representative purposes only.
