Hudson Valley meteorologist Ben Noll took to Facebook to try and explain why it's rained for five straight Saturdays.

The pattern that we’re in involves an active jet stream from the Pacific Ocean to the United States. Along this fast-flowing air stream, it takes storms 5-7 days to track from the North Pacific Ocean to the Northeast U.S. — right now, the 5-7 day periodicity just-so-happens to coincide with our weekends!"
