What is the "rain shadow"?
The Olympic Mountains act as a wall that protects the Sequim and other northeastern parts of the Olympic Peninsula from the bulk of the rain, clouds and storms that moves into the Pacific Northwest. Sequim receives only about 16” of annual rainfall! In addition, the nearby Juan de Fuca has a moderating effect on the temperatures.
