Public Information Statement

Statement as of 10:46 AM PDT on September 27, 2016


August saw much below normal precipitation for all of Washington
state. For some sites throughout the state, especially on the
eastern side of the Cascades, August 2016 was in their top ten
driest for August. As we head into the last month of the water year,
all of Washington state continues to be in the near to above normal
range, despite the much below normal rainfall received last month.

In western Washington, the monthly percentage of normal for
precipitation ranged from 22 percent in the northwest interior to 62
percent in the southwest interior. The greatest amount of
precipitation at the climate stations for the mountains, coast and
interior lowlands was 2.25 inches at Forks in the Olympic Mountains,
0.81 at Aberdeen, and 1.95 inches at Grays River in the southwest
interior.

For eastern Washington, the percentage of normal for precipitation
ranged from 15 percent in the Central Basin to 31 percent in the
northeast region. The greatest amount of precipitation at climate
stations for the mountains and lowlands was 0.39 inches at Winthrop
on the eastern slopes of the Cascades, and 0.50 inches at Chewelah
in the northeast region.

The outlook for September and beyond for Washington state, for the
next two weeks the outlook is for below normal precipitation. The
monthly outlook for September calls for below normal precipitation
for the southern third of the state, with equal chances of above,
below or near normal precipitation for the rest. The three month
outlook for September through November calls for equal chances of
above, below or near normal precipitation for all of Washington.

The Table below gives precipitation figures as a percent of normal
for regions of Washington. The current water year began 1 October
2015 and ends 30 September 2016.
