SEATTLE - A rain shower Sunday night in Seattle dropped the first measurable moisture since July 23 at Sea-Tac Airport. That ended the dry stretch at 48 days, the second-longest on record.
The record is 51 days set in the summer of 1951.
The National Weather Service says the showers won't last long. Warm dry weather is forecast for Western Washington for the rest of the week.
