On this week's edition of AccuWeather LIVE, we were joined by SPACE.com's Dave Brody to discuss the upcoming Manhattanhenge. This interesting phenomenon occurs when the sun lines up with the city skyline of New York City and sets against the street grids. The event only happens four times a year, twice during the summer and twice during the winter. In the winter, conditions are typically too poor to see or photograph it well, so the summer solstice Manhattanhenge is a great opportunity for photographers.
We also had Justin Povick doing live forecasts throughout the show to talk about the latest with Chantal and how the soggy Southeast could see downpours and flooding throughout the weekend.
