SEATTLE (AP) — Wednesday's rain ended a 12-day dry stretch in Seattle, as recorded at Sea-Tac Airport.

National Weather Service meteorologist Mike McFarland says it was the second-longest dry streak in January on record. Only a 15-day dry spell in the city in January 1963 was longer.

McFarland says the normal pattern of lowland rain and mountain snow is likely to continue for a few days with another dry period possible next week.

He also says Seattle still has a chance of snow this winter, in the first couple of weeks of February.
