With almost three months remaining, 2011 is already the seventh wettest year since recording began in Central Park during the Johnson administration. The Andrew Johnson administration. Through yesterday we're up to 60.132 inches of rain and the year will almost certainly finish as the second wettest year ever behind the very soggy 1983. The temperature hasn't quite been at record pace, but the last six months—and seven of nine months this year—have been warmer than normal.

Signs of fall continue to make themselves known. This morning's low of 48 was the first time since early May that the temperature has fallen below 50 degrees. Today's high will only reach the low 60s as unsettled weather continues for the first part of this week. Look for the occasional shower this afternoon and evening.

The stubborn upper level low has still not left the building. Tuesday will be a slightly warmer repeat of today with scattered showers and a high around 65. Gusty northwesterly winds will mark the departure of that low as a dry Canadian air mass moves into the region either tomorrow night or early Wednesday. That high pressure system should bring clear skies for the remainder of the week and through the weekend.
