  1. Did it only rain at my house last Sat? It didn’t last long, but I got pretty wet when I went out to close my car windows.

  2. Light rain was noted sporadically around the county, however no measurable rainfall at the National Weather Service’s official recording station at Olympia Regional Airport. Regardless of the trace of rain, the dry conditions are exceptional and there is no rain in the forecast for the next 10 days. Next week we could be at 65 days without measurable rain.
