This past weekend's storm dropped 3.15 inches of rain in Kingston. This made it our single greatest rain even since tropical storm Lee, nearly eight months ago. Altogether, the storm compensated for roughly half of our rainfall deficit for the year.

Seasonable weather will return to the region this week. There is a 70% chance of rain showers Thursday, and then there is also a chance of showers heading into the weekend. Otherwise, it will be partly cloudy. Temperatures will run in the upper 50's and lower 60's. Overnight lows will generally run in the upper 30's.

It is interesting to note that, while we are almost into May, this weekend's storm is actually being considered a "winter storm" by the National Weather Service. The storm pulled enough cold air into it to produce a rather remarkable snowfall across western New York and Pennsylvania, and as far south as southeastern West Virginia. Many of these areas were placed under winter storm warnings on Sunday.

Total snowfall amounts for the storm were above 15 inches in New York and Pennsylvania, and around 6 inches in Maryland and West Virginia. Isolated portions of the mountains may have recorded total as great as 18 inches.

Total rainfall values of 3 to 5 inches was common from Maine through coastal New Jersey.
