February will finish as Seattle’s first drier-than-normal month since September
Looking back at the month of February, the wind and cold seemed to dominate the weather. The Seattle Area experiences it’s first drier than normal month since September.
January, however, experienced much wetter-than-normal conditions as over 8 inches fell onto the roofs of Seattle. The normal for the month of January is just shy of 6 inches.
The extra rain in January, coupled with winds, meant several building owners were performing inspections to make sure the drain vents weren’t clogged and holding water.
Several times throughout the year SERVPRO clients will call when a blockage on their roof suddenly clears and overflows into the building.
Always check your roof/gutters after a particularly windy storm to make sure your drainage system is running smoothly.
