You must be right about a lot of interest on Seattle's weather. There are atleast seven threads about Seattle weather on the front page of the Seattle section.

Your numbers look about right, although I've never seen them stated in that form. Thunderstorms and days above 90 are the only stats that look a little low to me.

Another good place to get an overview is weather.com (The weather channel's website). They've got an "averages" section for just about every decent-sized town in the U.S.

Seattle weather is both mundane and unique. Mundane in that there are not a lot of storms, and many days seem similar. Unique, in that it is one of the few places in the US that is relatively cool in the summer, relatively mild in the winter, and despite its reputation, not anywhere close to the wettest city in the country (by total precipitation). However, Seattle can produce some of the most beautiful skyscapes in the world with the mountains and water as backdrops.

I love clicking for these polls! Thank you, NJ-201, for creating it.

Discussions of this subject get to be pretty silly, don't they, but I'm glad to add my love of this area's gentle climate-with-character, nifty cloud life, and unfailing fecundity.

Nice reply allforcats, but I have to admit I am going to have to look up the word "fecundity".
