A steady rain, amounting to 0.55", fell during the afternoon - the first rain on this date in 12 years. One week after a heat wave, with temperatures 30 degrees above average, today was chilly, with a high/low of 52/43.
For the sixth year in a row rain fell on this date as mid-afternoon showers amounted to 0.14".
What a spectacular start to my summer share out at Fire Island as the afternoon high soared to 88 degrees (in NYC) after a low of 52.
After just 0.61" of rain fell in the first twenty-four days of the month, 1.60" poured down today. The rain came from two storm systems. The first brought the bulk of the rain in the AM hours (1.13") and the second moved in after dark.
