With an extended period of dry weather on the way, swollen rivers across the east will begin to fall below flood stage.

After one storm after another across the east in the last several weeks, after one more system, we're in the clear for a while. Literally. With President's Day showers on the way, this will be the last storm system for several day. That's good news for area rivers. The Tar River at Greenville is at a flood stage of 15 feet, with flood stage at 13 feet. By Monday the stage will be 13.7, 11.6 by Tuesday, and 9.4 by Wednesday. The Roanoke River near Williamston will begin to fall as well in the coming days. The Contentnea River is at a stage of 13.5 feet, a half foot above flood stage. By Monday the stage is expected to be 13 feet, 12.4 Tuesday, and 11.8 Wednesday. And finally the Neuse River is at a stage of 17.5, 3 .5 feet above flood stage. By Monday expect a level of 17.4 feet, 17.0 feet by Tuesday, and 16.3 by Wednesday.

Dry weather is expected through at least next weekend. We all get a well deserved break from snowy and wet weather.
