What Is Our Longest Summer Dry Streak?

By By Steve Pool

SEATTLE - It's been a very warm and dry summer this year so far. As of this writing, we've only received 0.06 inches of rain for July, and just over a half an inch for the summer so far -- a good inch and a half below normal.

But we haven't managed to string together a really long string of dry days yet -- so far the longest stretch has been the 12 days to start July. But back in 1951, we went a whopping 51 straight days without rain, from July 7 through August 26.

Oddly enough, the second-longest streak was actually during a good chunk of fall in 1991, stretching 45 days between Sept. 1 and Oct. 15.
