KING-5 TV in Seattle reports today that,
“It was a record breaking day at Sea-Tac (rain on Easter Sunday).
The airport had .83 and that was enough to break the old record of .61 set in 1950.
Hoquiam and Olympia also broke records.”
Olympia Regional Airport’s 1.05″ of rain broke the old April 12th rainfall record of .80″ set in 1972.
Interesting that April 12, 2008 also set an all time temperature record for the date of 82 degrees.
Other records at Olympia since March 1st:
– April 4 recorded a record low of 25 F, which beat the 2001 record of 26 F.
– March 10 recorded a record low of 20 F, which beat the 1969 record of 21 F.
– March 9 recorded a record low of 23 F, which beat the 1963 record of 25 F.
