The Good Side of Tuesday's Storms: Rain!

Although Tuesday night's storms produced straight-line wind damage across much of North Carolina, the rain was a welcomed sight. A new record rainfall for March 4 was set when 2.0" fell at the Raleigh-Durham Airport.

Here's a look at other rainfall reports from around our area --
  • Chapel Hill: 1.60"
  • Goldsboro: 1.32"
  • Rocky Mount-Wilson: 0.86"
  • Fayetteville: 0.75"

The 2" rainfall at RDU cut the rainfall deficit since January 1, 2007 to -8.83". Obviously, Tuesday night's rain helps some but more is needed. We should not have to wait too long for more rain. In fact, it's becoming more likely that we'll see a soaking rain Friday into Saturday. I have more details in this morning's video blog update....
