Goodbye Gabrielle

Gabrielle has weakened into a tropical depression and should continue to weaken as it moves northeast getting farther and farther from our coast. Gabrielle did make landfall near Cape Lookout just before noon on Sunday as a tropical storm. While it was a fairly weak storm, it did produce a lot of rain in some areas. Here's a look at rain totals this weekend along the coast:
  • Beaufort: 7.43"
  • Cherry Point: 4.58"
  • New Bern: 1.89"
  • Greenville: 0.44"
  • Kill Devil Hills: 0.41"
  • Aurora: 0.30"
  • Hatteras: 0.27"
  • Manteo: 0.27"
  • Wilmington: 0.03"

Unfortunately, it was only the coast that benefited from Gabrielle's rains. We remain hot and dry here in central North Carolina. Our next hope for some rain will be from a front that should stall out over the state midweek. However, those rains chances aren't looking as optimistic as they once were. We'll keep you posted.
