It didn't rain every day this spring; just two-thirds of them. The region has been stuck in a pattern that in winter might produce a harvest of snow. Friday brings a not-so-fond farewell to spring on the first day of summer.
Rain, rain doesn't go away: The nation just experienced its wettest 12-month period on record, according to the government. And both New Jersey and Pennsylvania had all-time highs for precipitation for any June-May period.
In what has been a wild run of severe weather, for 12 consecutive days the government’s Storm Prediction Center has logged reports of at least eight tornadoes. That's a destructive and impressive streak that constitutes a record — but that could change.
It wasn’t much, and it didn’t last long, but National Weather Service investigators have confirmed that a tornado touched down Sunday at the Beaver Valley Campgrounds in the Ottsville section of Tinicum Township, Bucks County.
