First Measurable Rainfall Of 2008

Eastern North Carolina recorded its first measurable rain of the new year on Friday. Total rainfall was generally light but with the drought conditions almost any rain is welcomed. The heaviest rain was recorded in southeastern counties where many areas recorded over a quarter inch. Other areas received much less. However, more rain is possible late Friday night into Saturday morning and again on Sunday. The general storm track has been shifting southward over the past few days so it appears the chances for rain over the next week to 10 days will be fairly good. Friday's rainfall across the area included:

Jacksonville - .39"
Lake Mattamuskeet - .29"
New Bern - .28"
Manteo - .26"
Harkers Island - .11"
Washington - .11"
Elizabeth City - .08"
Goldsboro - .07"
