Discussion

There was a record set late yesterday at Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) in South Philly for daily rainfall when slightly more than 8 inches of rain fell in about a 5 hour period. Just a few miles to the east or west of the airport, however, there was far less rainfall in this highly localized event which was caused by the "training" of thunderstorms when one storm after another passes over the same location. The excessive rainfall at PHL broke the record for the most rainfall in any given day by easily surpassing the 6.63 inches of rain that fell on September 16, 1999 associated with the remnants of Hurricane Floyd. Yesterday's rainfall also pushed the monthly amount of rainfall at PHL to 13.00 inches which is a new record for the month of July. Of course, June was a very wet month as well and the two months are now in second place for rainfall amounts in back-to-back months - still short of the record set in August/September 2011 (remnants of Hurricanes Irene, Lee). By the way, another quarter inch of rain fell after midnight at PHL on top of the 7/28 record amount, and there still is a chance for the wettest summer ever there depending on the August results. Only a trace of rain was recorded yesterday at Reagan National Airport.

A cool front passed through the region late yesterday causing all of this rainfall and high pressure will now fill in behind it controlling our weather for the next couple of days. Temperatures and humidity levels should hold at rather comfortable levels for the next couple of days and it looks rain-free until mid-week at which point another frontal system will threaten the region with showers and thunderstorms.
