For the first time in almost three years there is no drought, or abnormally dry conditions in North Carolina.
Thursday's map released by the U.S. Drought Monitor showed normal conditions for all 100 counties. The last time that happened was January 30th, 2007.
The state experienced its worst drought on record in the summer, fall and winter of 2007.
Since then above average rainfall has helped replenish streams, rivers and reservoirs. This past month has been unusually wet across the state, with many locations experiencing record-setting rainfall amounts.
In a one-month period ending Dec. 9, data from NC State shows it was the wettest for this time of the year for many areas including Kinston, New Bern, Plymouth and Roanoke Rapids.
