Parts Of Eastern Carolina Now "Abnormally Dry"

Despite a lot of rain this past winter, abnormally dry conditions have returned to parts of Eastern Carolina.

Onslow and Duplin counties are among 26 counties in the southern and central parts of the state to receive that classification once again. It's the first time since December that any part of the Tar Heel State has experienced dry conditions.

The state says the abnormally dry classification is not a drought category, but it indicates that if rainfall deficits continue drought conditions could return.

Here in Eastern Carolina, the average for April is 3.45 inches of rain. In Greenville so far this month they've only received 1.08" of rain.
