425 PM EDT Fri Jun 22 2018 

High pressure cresting over Southern New England on this Friday 
allowed skies to start off the day mostly sunny. However as the high 
moved off the coast to the east skies became partly sunny. Highs for 
this last day of the work week ranged from the upper 60s to the upper 
80s.

Tonight clouds will be on the increase with a slight chance of 
widely scattered showers after midnight. It will not be as cool as 
this morning, lows tonight will be in the mid to upper 50s. 

Looking to the weekend, an approaching warm front on Saturday will 
bring scattered showers to the region, and perhaps rumbles of 
thunder. Morning lows ranging in the 50s Saturday morning will only 
rebound into the mid 60s to low 70s by afternoon. A cold front will 
move through on Sunday thus scattered showers with rumbles of 
thunder will linger. Morning lows on Sunday will range in the mid 
50s to low 60s, with afternoon highs warming into the mid 70s to low 
80s. There will also be an increase in humidity Sunday afternoon.

Historical Weather And Climate Facts For Today
/////////////////////////
JUNE 22ND...HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS
...1947...
Twelve inches of rain fell in forty-two minutes at Holt MO establishing a
world rainfall record. That record was tied on January 24-25, 1956, at the
Kilauea Sugar Plantation in Hawaii, as their state record was established
with 38 inches of rain in 24 hours. (The Weather Channel)
...1972...
Hurricane Agnes deluged Pennsylvania and New York State with torrential
rains resulting in the most costly flood in U.S. history. In the Middle
Susquehanna Valley of Pennsylvania, 24 hour rainfall amounts were generally
8 to 12 inches, with up to 19 inches in extreme southwestern Schuylkill
County. At Wilkes-Barre PA the dike was breached destroying much of the
town. Flooding resulted in 117 deaths and 3.1 billion dollars damage.
(David Ludlum)
...1981...
A young woman from Lubbock TX was struck by lightning. The bolt of
lightning struck just above her right shoulder near her neck, and passed
right to left through her body, tearing her warm-ups, causing her tennis
shoes to explode, and lifting her two feet into the air. (The Weather
Channel)
...1992...
Record cold prevailed in the eastern U.S. with 67 low temperature records for 
the date tied or broken.  Indianapolis, Indiana dipped to 37 degrees to set a 
new all-time record low temperature for June and the coldest summer temperature 
ever.  In sharp contrast, it was a furnace in the Pacific Northwest with Eugene 
and Medford, Oregon setting new all-time record high temperatures for June with 
102 and 111 degrees, respectively.
