Behind a round of thunderstorms which produced frequent lightning, heavy rain and even some small hail, drier air worked into the area earlier this morning. As it did so, rain continued to fall from remaining updrafts and downdrafts associated with thunderstorms that were weakening over the area. The result, as the sun began to shine, were beautiful rainbows which stretched across the sky in New Jersey and New York City.
Readers on our website, Facebook, Twitter and other social media outlets took to posting their pictures of the rainbows (in some cases, double rainbows) as they stretched across the sky. If you have any pictures of your own, share them with us in the comments section below!
