The strongest deluge of one-day rain in two years soaked the Puget Sound Monday afternoon with rainfall totals at SeaTac Airport registering 2.13 inches. The last rainfall totals of this magnitude were last recorded on December 12th, 2010.
Power lines were damaged by falling trees knocking out power to some peninsula residents. Roads became treacherous as visibility was significantly reduced. Patches of flooding were also reported.
Another rain storm is forecast for the region Tuesday afternoon, although rain fall totals are expected to be much less than Monday's weather event. Winds are expected to be turbulent with predictions of 30-40 mph gusts.
Forecasters are predicting a mild Thanksgiving Day weather pattern.
