1925

This was the third day the City was impacted by a large, meandering, extra-tropical system that brought rain squalls and gusty winds over the course of five days, between Dec. 1-5.  2.76” of rain fell during this period, with today being the wettest.  1.63” was measured in Central Park, but none of the rain was torrential; the greatest two-hour totals were 0.41” from midnight-2 AM, and 0.36” between 8-10 PM.  After this system dissipated, only 0.54” of precipitation fell for the remainder of the month.
