Disappointing Rain Totals

A few rain showers the end of last week produced disappointing rain totals across central North Carolina. Most locations saw far less than what was originally expected, and for the most part, the rain did nothing to put a dent in our drought.

Here's a look at rain totals from Thursday and Friday around the region --
  • Raleigh (NC State Centennial Campus): 1.03"
  • Rocky Mount-Wilson: 0.55"
  • Erwin: 0.20"
  • Fayetteville: 0.16"
  • Raleigh-Durham Airport: 0.13"
  • Chapel Hill: 0.09"
  • Goldsboro: 0.02"

It appears that heavy showers and thunderstorms to our south along the Gulf Coast "robbed" our area of more widespread rains on Friday.

There is a lot of uncertainty in the computer models this week. It does appear we have the chance for a few spotty light showers Tuesday and Wednesday, but those chances aren't all that high right now.
