Dry weather holds for Sept. 11 memorial ceremonies on 15th anniversary

Dry weather was in place for ceremonies that were held at the World Trade Center site, the Pentagon and near Shanksville, Pennsylvania on Sunday for the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

Despite a cold front moving through the Northeast, New York City, Washington D.C., and Shanksville remained dry as all of the storms remained north across New England.

Hundred of people gathered for a name-reading observance at the Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville, according to the Associated Press.

At the Pentagon, President Obama spoke during the memorial service where 184 people were killed when a hijacked plane crashed into the building.

The cold front had already passed both ceremonies helping to send drier and more comfortable air through the area.

In New York City, victims were honored by surviving relatives who spoke where the World Trade Center towers once stood.

Bells also rang and moments of silence were observed to remember the victims.

In addition to the ceremony, both presidential candidates, Hillary Rodham Clinton and Donald Trump visited the memorial site.

Mrs. Clinton was forced to leave early. Her campaign said she was overheated.

"Sunday morning was very humid ahead of the cold front in New York City with dew points in the lower 70s F," AccuWeather Meteorologist Rich Jaworski said.

Dew points in the 60s tends to feel humid to most people while anything above 70 is considered oppressive.

However, by 10 a.m. EDT Sunday morning, the aforementioned cold front brought lower humidity and a refreshing breeze to the region with dew points falling into the middle 50s.
