Don't be scared. That mass of incandescent gas in the sky is the sun! The sun should be around for a few hours today before clouds and possibly showers or even a thunderstorm return this afternoon. Any showers should be hit or miss which means there's a good chance the consecutive rain streak will end at seven days. In those seven days 3.81 inches of rain has fallen on the now very lush vegetation of Central Park. Normal rainfall for all of May is 4.69 inches.

Tomorrow should be very similar to today. Scattered showers, maybe a thunderstorm, and a high in the upper 70s.

There's a better chance of rain Saturday night. By Sunday morning, however, a slow drying trend will have begun. Look for Mother's Day to be mostly cloudy and breezy with a high in the low 70s. Next week should feature several days of sun.
