Rainfall records were broken at Olympia Regional Airport as follows:
July 19, 2007
The .36 inches surpassed the .17 inch record for the date set in 1996.
The .29 inches broke the former record of .20 inches set in 1964.
The July monthly rainfall record is 3.00 inches, and Olympia to-date has recorded 1.85 inches.
The cool, damp wether has suspended the annual summer burn-ban as follows, quoting The Olympian,
“A burn ban that will be lifted Friday morning [July 27] does not include brush fires on wildlands.That ban, as always, is in effect from July 15 to Oct. 15, Mary Baumann with Thurston County Fire District 11 said today.
The burn ban that is being lifted Friday at 8 a.m. is in regard to recreational fires, such as at campgrounds and outdoor burnings such as barbecue. The state Department of Natural Resources is lifting that ban, although it could be reinstated if drier, hotter conditions return.”
