After one of the driest falls on record in the NYC area, with only three rain events over 1/4 inch since September 1st, the most significant storm since late June affected the eastern US during November 26-27. Initially, the model guidance suggested mixed precipitation for the area with snow inland, before trending offshore in the medium range and finally depicting a major rain event. Over 1-3 inches of rain fell across the area, making this the most significant rain event since the remnants of tropical storm Andrea in early June.
