Wednesday's Rains

The rain added up nicely in eastern North Carolina on Wednesday. Locations east of I-95 saw the highest rain totals. Here's a look at some of the rain reports around our area --
  • Goldsboro: 2.54"
  • Rocky Mount-Wilson: 1.63"
  • Chapel Hill: 1.15"
  • Raleigh-Durham: 0.91"
  • Lumberton: 0.77"
  • Fayetteville: 0.76"

While yesterday's rains did help put a small dent in our rainfall deficit for 2007, much more rain is still needed. The deficit for the year now stands at 8.78" for RDU and at 25.08" in Lumberton.

We'll stay dry today, but more rain is possible for the weekend. A few showers will be possible late Friday and early Saturday, but the best chance for rain should come on Sunday. Stay tuned to Weather on the Ones on News 14 Carolina for the latest forecasts.
