A Soggy Week in NYC

One word can sum up the weather in New York City this past week – soggy.  Over the last five days, we received 2.97 inches of rain, most of which fell as heavy downpours on two separate occasions.

On Monday, 1.6 inches was measured in Central Park. Then on Friday, after a few days of scattered showers, another 1.28 inches came down in a single twenty-four hour period. It is only mid-June and the city has already had 3.96 inches of rain. The Big Apple, on average, receives 4.41 inches for the entire month.

It is interesting to note that June is now the third month in a row that NYC experienced at least one significant heavy rain event.
