SEATTLE (AP) — Rainfall has set a record this spring in Seattle.

The National Weather Service says for the three-month period beginning in February, 19.21 inches of rain has fallen at Sea-Tac Airport, as of mid-day Thursday.

Meteorologist Josh Smith says that breaks the record of 18.98 set in 1972.

Smith says the record may rise in the remaining days of April as a chance of rain continues into next week before drier, warmer weather is expected.

The recent rain also set a record Wednesday at Hoquiam of 1.63 inches, which broke the record for the date of 1.36 inches set in Hoquiam in 1996.
