Overnight rainstorms on Wednesday shattered a 32-year-old Seattle record and aided in suppressing multiple wildfires throughout the Northwest, officials said.

According to the National Weather Service, 1.31 inches of rain fell at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in a 24-hour period that ended Wednesday morning. By 6 a.m. Wednesday, 0.85 of an inch of rain had fallen since midnight, shattering the date’s record of 0.33 of an inch set in 1982.
