SEATTLE (CBS Seattle/AP) — Cool, wet weather broke some records Thursday in Seattle and other parts of Washington.

More than half an inch of rain, .53, fell at The National Weather Service office in Seattle, more than doubling the old record set in 1993. Record rainfall also was reported at Olympia, .63, and Quillayute, .94.

So far this year, nearly 24 inches of rain have been recorded at Sea-Tac. That’s more than 6 inches above normal.

The low temperature at Moses Lake was 38, a degree lower than the old record set in 1982. Winthrop tied a record low of 31.

More rain and cool temps are expected for Friday.
