Yes, Wallingford got soaked over the weekend

Note: These totals don’t include last night’s squall (impressive, wasn’t it?).

If you wondered how much rain fell in each of Seattle’s neighborhoods during this weekend’s Pineapple Express, here’s a closer look.  A detailed analysis by a meteorologist from Seattle Public Utilities shows that most of Seattle received 3 to 4 inches of precipitation, with some areas receiving more.

The map-based analysis, based on data from 22 local rain gauges, shows that at several locations—including West Seattle, Green Lake, and South Park—the amount of rain that fell was close to that of a historical 100-year event.  For much of the rest of the city, it was a 20- to 30-year storm.  The map shows that Wallingford picked up between 3.5 and 4 inches.  The most rain fell on West Seattle, which received over 4 inches in at least one location.
