NEW YORK -- While many areas picked up decent amounts of rainfall yesterday, thankfully there were no severe weather reports. 

A much-improved day is underway for today, as sunshine returns and humidity drops. These are perfect conditions for the beach, but caution may be needed for swimming due to a moderate risk of rip currents. The clear skies will cause no issues for viewing Manhattanhenge at sunset tonight.
