The Weather in Sequim

Many people, particularly those who don’t think they could ever survive in the rainy Northwest, are surprised to learn of the relatively dry climate found in Sequim.  This is especially true when you consider that we are only 90 minutes away from Forks, the wettest town on the Olympic Peninsula, and just over 2 hours away from the stunning Hoh Rainforest.  These places each recieve a staggering 115+ inches of rain each year.  So why is it that the weather is so much better in Sequim?  It’s an odd phenomenon that stems directly from it’s position north of the Olympic Mountains.  We are located just far enough along the peninsula in what is known as a rainshadow of the Olympics.  On average, we receive only 16 inches of rainfall each year, while neighboring Port Angeles gets about 25 inches annually.  Interestingly, Sequim’s rainfall is about the same as that in Los Angeles.
