    At 37.41 inches (950 mm), the city receives less precipitation annually than Boston (43.70 in or 1,110 mm), New York (49.92 in or 1,268 mm), Washington, D.C. (39.67 in or 1,008 mm), Atlanta (49.68 in or 1,262 mm), and most cities on the Eastern Seaboard of the U.S. Yet, due to local variations in microclimate, Seattle proper receives significantly less precipitation than some other locations west of the Cascades.

    Around 80 mi (129 km) to the west, the Hoh Rain Forest in Olympic National Park on the western flank of the Olympic Mountains receives an annual average precipitation of 142 inches (3,610 mm). Sixty miles to the south of Seattle, the state capital Olympia, which is out of the Olympic Mountains' rain shadow, receives an annual average precipitation of 49.81 inches (1,270 mm).[69] The suburb of Bremerton, about 15 mi (24 km) to the southwest of downtown Seattle, receives 54.82 inches (1,390 mm) of precipitation annually.
