Summer squalls

Lines of thunderstorms moved through the area throughout the day, starting first thing and then recurring at midday and in the afternoon. The sun broke through periodically but humidity remained high. The Haggerty Girls was (were?) anchored in the River in the morning, but headed down to the Upper Bay in the afternoon and was (were) replaced by Nicole Reinauer.

Coast Guard cutter Sturgeon Bay, one of two ice breakers based in Bayonne, headed upriver to Haverstraw Bay. The NYC DEP water quality monitoring boat was making a circuit of Manhattan, perhaps checking impact of the recent heavy rains on water conditions.
