...What is the Best Weather Day for an Outdoor Wedding?...

`We want to have an outdoor wedding...when the the best day to do
so?` Those of us at the National Weather Service in Seattle get that
question all the time and particularly now as dates are being

Going back to 1891 when weather records began in Seattle, the driest
time throughout the year runs from July 21st through August 4th.
Those dates include days when it has rained the least number of
times in over 100 years.

So if you are planning an outdoor wedding or any other key outdoor
event, the mid July to early August period is historically the
driest time of year. And this trend applies to the rest of Western
Washington too!  Hey, the folks at SeaFair must know something!
