Weather Rewind: June 3rd-9th, 2012
The weather story of the week was the persistence of an upper level trough over the East Coast, bringing thunderstorm rounds to the region on Sunday and Thursday, and scatterings of showers on Monday and Tuesday to the Delaware Valley. Monday was particularly cool and damp, with showers falling into Monday night as temperatures outside of the city were solidly down in the 50's north and northwest of the city. While the city itself only picked up 0.45" of rain last week, other locations picked up quite a bit more. Reading picked up 0.80" and Allentown picked up 1.03" of rain, which added to Friday's bounty of rain have some locations running solidly over 200% of average in the rainfall department so far this month...the exception to that being Delaware and South Jersey...places that have been running pretty dry of late.
