And to be honest, I give short-shrift to normality in the blog, since I love to talk about the unusual, the extreme, and the interesting weather situations.

Take temperatures at Seattle Tacoma Airport for the past week (see chart below with normal highs and lows in red and blue, respectively). Pretty typical stuff.
Sea-Tac precipitation? The actual (red) is within .1 inches of normal during the same period. You are probably starting to yawn.
These normal conditions are found throughout the state. For example, Pasco's temperatures during the same time are.....completely typical:
This is simply maddening.... normal is not good for the weather business.
