For the rest of Pennsylvania and New Jersey, flows are mostly above normal. Groundwater levels are mostly above or much above normal except for southern New York where levels are about normal.

The weather outlook into early July calls for rain to be near or above average with above average temperatures. The NWS Climate Prediction Center's 30 day outlook for June calls for near or above average rainfall and temperatures. The 90 day outlook for June through August calls for above average precipitation and temperatures.

The outlook for water resources and supplies is good for southern New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. As we enter the warmest time of year along with the sun at its' strongest, conditions could be downgraded in southern New York if rainfall does not increase in the next few weeks. Elsewhere, little change is expected for the next couple of weeks.
