Eastern North Carolina experienced one of the wettest winters on record but conditions have been dry since late March. Since April 1 I've recorded about 2 inches at the WITN Weather Station. This compares with approximately 5 inches that would be expected during that time frame. Overall in 2010 I've received 18.48 inches or about 3 inches more than you would usually expected. Of course, gardeners and farmers are starting to worry about the dry weather pattern for their crops. We should see a few showers around the next few days but nothing that would break the dry weather pattern. A better chance for rain should develop by the beginning of next week as moisture from the Gulf of Mexico returns to the area.
