Drought? What Drought?

The weekly update on North Carolina's drought status was released today. As you likely expected with record June rainfall in Raleigh, the drought size has shrunk.
The drought is pretty much all gone across the News 14 Carolina viewing area. However, extreme northern Granville, Vance, and Warren Counties are considered to be "abnormally dry." A moderate drought continues for western North Carolina, but parts of that region had been under a severe drought just last week.

We may see a few isolated thunderstorms this Thursday afternoon to add to our rain totals. After today, our rain chances will be slim to none through the weekend.
