Despite the fact that PA has not yet received any excessive widespread rainfall due to any tropical storms, some areas have already received near record rainfall for June. In Philadelphia 8.31" has fallen this month which makes this the second wettest June on record. In the Poconos just over 7" of rain has occurred which is 4.1" above normal. At the moment we see no chance of widespread soaking rainfall events through the weekend and even a chance of a thunderstorm is small currently. Sunny with temperatures in the high 70's for the next few days. Nights will be chilly and clear with a waxing moon. The moon will be full this Sunday. Also this weekend we can expect warmer temperatures into the 80's and possibly reaching 90 next week.
In most areas the flower gardens are in full bloom this week. one of the more interesting blooms is pictured below from Towanda. It's appropriately known as a spider lily.
