Drought Outlook

The latest seasonal drought outlook released earlier this month does give us a little hope for our current drought conditions. The forecast through April is for an ongoing drought, but "some improvement". We won't see much of that improvement this week. While we do have a couple of rain chances coming up early Wednesday morning and Friday, the chances for a substantial soaking rain do not look good.

The 8-14 day forecast through next week does suggest we may have more rain chances ahead. That forecast from the Climate Prediction Center forecasts above average rainfall for our area.

I've actually been watching that forecast and the other links off of ncdrought.org. It's nice to see it's not quite as bleak as it has been.

It sure is... it'll take some time, but at least there is some better news ahead!
