Which Month Is The Cloudiest In Seattle?

By By Steve Pool

SEATTLE - You might expect it'd be hard to distinguish whether it seems cloudier in November, December, or January. Well, you'd be right.

On average, both December and January have 23 of their 31 days considered cloudy -- as in at least 80 percent of the sky covered on average through the day. November is right behind with 22 of 30 days as cloudy.

But, November can lay claim to fame as the least sunniest month, with only 2 sunny days on average -- compared to 3 days for January and December. (It makes up the balance with one extra partly cloudy day over January and December.)

Both December and January also hold the title for cloudiest month ever. Imagine this: the sun goes the entire month without an appearance. That occurred both in Jan. 1953 and Dec. of 1966.

Hello Seattle News Team,
I don't know if you will read this but I wanted to help my Aunt, and support her cause. My cousin recently passed away from overdosing on drugs. She had been in and out of treatment for a while. My aunt and her other daughter decided to try and start Opulent.Mercies.

Sitting in my car at the Federal Way Library on 1st Way. Looked down and saw a squirrel munching on a chocolate covered donut. Luckily , he was chewing on the non-chocolate side.
