Happy start of the rainy season in Seattle! Sure, it's blazing sunshine of late again, but Oct. 1 is the official start and thus also marks the start/end point of the "water year." In addition to tracking rainfall from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, NOAA also tracks it from Oct. 1 to Sept. 30 (calling it the "water year" rainfall) since our rainy season goes from October to March, this way we can also get a good gauge of the autumn/winter as a whole and its impact on our water and snowpack situations. For 2014-15, Seattle ended up with 36.82 inches of rain, just 2/3" below the normal of 37.49 inches. But this year, it'd be real nice if "rainy season" lived up to its title, since our drought is still going stong. Now some are probably wondering: "Wait a minute, but you just said we weren't that far below normal for our past 'water year', how can it be a drought?" Indeed, last year we had about 39.11" for our 2013-14 water year -- just a little more than 2" than this year -- and we weren't in this bad of shape.
