Just how wet and windy was Tuesday's storm?

Just how wet and windy was Tuesday's storm?

November is by far the rainiest month in Seattle and after this week, it's easy to see why.

Many areas had between 2 and 5 inches of rain as a strong cold front arrived, then stalled over the area.

The Kitsap Peninsula got the brunt of the storm's rainfall with many areas receiving over 5 inches of rain!
