Weekend Storms; More Rain to Start the Week

Thunderstorms produced hail in some spots around our area Sunday afternoon and evening. Pea sized hail was reported in Wake County near Wake Forest and near the Franklin County line. Larger hail up to an inch in diameter was reported in Pittsboro and between Rocky Mount and Wilson.

Sunday's showers and storms produced some beneficial rains for the area --
  • Rocky Mount-Wilson: 0.69"
  • Raleigh-Durham Airport: 0.43"
  • Fayetteville: 0.39"
  • Raleigh (NCSU): 0.33"
  • Chapel Hill: 0.03"
  • Lumberton: 0.01"

As you can see, not everyone saw beneficial rains over the weekend. If you missed out, more rain is in the forecast today and tomorrow. I have more on the rain chances the next couple of days in this morning's video blog update posted below...
