Discussion: The upper level low associated with the storm that produced all the rain over the interior northeast is now retrograding and starting to weaken. Over the next couple days it will eventually be absorbed by a strengthening jet stream over the northern United States. At the surface, a remnant low and its associated front have slipped farther to the south, and with Hurricane Katia passing well offshore, skies have been able to clear up over much of the area. This system will continue to trigger areas of cloud cover and bring a chance for additional light rain.
