Welcome to the fourth wettest June on record! If we did our math right, yesterday's non-derecho dropped 1.58 inches of rain on Central Park, which raised the monthly total to 9.54 inches. The June record happened in 2003 when 10.27 inches were observed. With two weeks remaining in the month that record is within easy striking distance! There's a chance of rain today, but since that chance is more due to a potpourri of weather phenomena than any significant storm, we'll probably have to wait until next week to see the monthly record fall.

Today's potpourri consists of leftover precipitation as yesterday's storm runs out to sea, rain caused by an upper-level disturbance as it trails the departing storm, and whatever rainfall an approaching cold front can churn up. None of these look like particularly potent precipitation powerhouses, but their presence means we can't count out any rainfall until after the front passes this evening. With a little luck we might see some sun this afternoon, but today's high will struggle to get into the low 70s.

High pressure moves in overnight setting up a picture perfect Saturday. Look for mostly sunny skies and a seasonable high near 80 degrees. Sunday is expected to be just as warm but the high pressure system is going to move eastward during the day which will allow more humid, unstable air to arrive. The forecast gets a bit fuzzy thereafter, with zonal flow aloft and a series of weak fronts at the surface. That's nerd talk for a chance of showers and thunderstorms from late Sunday through next Tuesday.
