February Rainfall Above Normal

After a year of drought Eastern North Carolina finally received above normal rainfall. February was only the second month in the past thirteen that showed widespread wet conditions. The WITN Weather Station received 4.47" of rainfall for the month which is about one inch above the long-term average for February. A survey of other communities indicated that nearly all sections had a wet month. Much of the area remains in moderate to severe drought conditions except for Carteret County, which is considered abnormally dry. The weekend looks dry but more rain is expected by Tuesday and the forecast for the first half of March indicates above normal rainfall is likely.
