It's been an off-and-on rainy 36 hours around Western Washington but mainly "on" for the Olympia area, which has been rather picked on with frequent showers.
I went back and checked and in the 36 hour period between 1 a.m. on Tuesday and 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Olympia had rain falling for 1,357 minutes out of 2160 possible minutes.
Now, a nearly all-day steady rain event isn't unheard of around here, but this wasn't one big slow-moving front that created the rain.
No, it was just a bunch of individual showers that managed to find Olympia. In fact, they had no less that 17 separate showers move through -- as in, the rain stopped and started 17 different times over that period! Some were several minutes, some were just a few minutes:
8:04 - 11:14
12:44 p.m - 1:07 p.m. (and still raining at this cut-off point)
To compare, Everett had 7 periods of rain (although one really long one) for 904 minutes, while Seattle had 12 showers (much shorter) for 886 minutes of rain.
