Buffalo, NY (WBEN) Many of you have been chanting the refrain, "rain, rain go away" often in the first third of June. But forecasters say it's possible we could be in for some drier days.
National Weather Service meteorologist John Hitchcock says we've seen a little more than four inches of rain so far, the average amount for June is three inches. "There's been a persistent storm track from the upper midwest to the Great Lakes and into the northeast," explains Hitchcock. "We've been sharing in the pain so far." He says it's rained all but four days so far.
But there's some hope for those who'd like to get out and enjoy June weather. "Especially in the warmer months, the rain tends to come in boom and bust cycles in this part of the world, so it's not uncommon to have two weeks of rain, then several more weeks of dry weather," says Hitchcock.
Hitchcock says there may be an extended period of dry weather next week.
