There were 8 days with measurable precipitation. Rainfall was generally light and sparse through the first 21 days of the month causing the New Jersey EPA to issue a Drought Watch for northeast New Jersey. From the 22nd-25th, a total of 3.58 inches of rain fell. This resulted in the Drought Watch to be lifted. The most received in a 24-hour period was 1.70 inches on the 22nd.
