June's rainy legacy


Today we might be in for something completely different -- a rain-free afternoon.

However it's likely that by the time June 2013 ends tomorrow night, it will add to its official 10.11 inches in Philadelphia.

Already it has becomet the rainiest month not named July, August, or September in the 142-year period of record.

It's also quite possible, with showers possible tomorrow afternoon and evening, that June will move up a few notches in the all-month standings. Right now, it stands at No. 10.
