A Wet Summer

The last few dry summers have been replaced with a wet 2009.

Intermittent showers and thunderstorms continue across eastern North Carolina this summer.  It has been several years since we have seen such a wet summer.  Until recently eastern North Carolina was in a moderate to severe drought.  It seemed like you couldn't find a thunderstorm when you needed one for your garden or crops.  This summer has been far different.  Heavy showers and thunderstorms develop every three to four days and have provided benefits to our water supply as well as our gardens.  The overall weather pattern looks like it will stay on the damp side as we move into the latter part of July and early August.  New forecasts from the Climate Prediction Center continue to suggest near or above normal rainfall as we move into the fall and winter seasons.  If nothing else, it has certainly made the plants happy this year.
