Over the past week, much of the northeastern United States received precipitation, with the highest amounts (2 inches or greater) falling in West Virginia and western Pennsylvania, and lighter amounts falling over New England.

Despite some recent precipitation, abnormal dryness persisted in eastern Pennsylvania.
