Discussion

Our prolonged rain event will finally end tonight, but not before another day with scattered shower and thunderstorm activity. Heavy rainfall amounts are not expected today, however, as any new precipitation totals should be at or less than a quarter of an inch. In fact, Sunday turned out to be the wettest day on record at JFK airport with nearly 8 inches of rain recorded during this significant rain event and excessive rain amounts fell in many parts of New Jersey and the rest of the Mid-Atlantic region. High pressure finally takes control of our weather on Wednesday, but that reprieve will be short-lived as more unsettled weather is threatening for the latter part of the week. A shower or thunderstorm is possible again by Thursday and even more likely for Friday. The weekend will feature some improvement although a shower or thunderstorm cannot be ruled out on Saturday.
