Weather conditions have finally changed after a long and hot summer. Showers and thunderstorms dotted the area from Tuesday through Friday and brought quite a bit of rainfall to some areas. Reports of three to four inches of rain could be found in localized areas. Most locations got between one and three inches this week. The most extreme drought conditions have now ended for North Carolina because of the recent heavy rainfall. Some showers are in the forecast for Saturday followed by drier conditions by Labor Day and next week. Most of the rain this week was caused by the remnants of Tropical Storm Fay. More tropical troubles are brewing and eventually we may get more rain from some of those systems. We'll continue to keep you informed.
