A spell of foul weather has hit several regions in North Carolina, causing localized floods, power outages, and a few fallen trees over the past weekend. Wake County didn’t fare too well, with the Triangle receiving especially heavy rain Tuesday night. Below is an excerpt from a TWC News weather report:
The biggest weather threat over the weekend will be the heavy rain. The heaviest rain will likely fall over central North Carolina where two to four inches is expected. A few locations near or northwest of the Triangle may see over four inches. East of I-95 and near the coast, one to three inches is likely.
The heavy downpours could lead to localized flooding. Watch for street flooding especially in poor drainage areas Saturday and Sunday.
Much of the area has seen well above normal rainfall for the summer. Since June 1, Raleigh has measured just over 13 inches of rain. That is almost 4 inches above normal. In Wilmington, just over 17 inches has fallen since June 1. That is a little more than 3 inches above normal.
No severe storms have yet been forecast, although the threat cannot be completely ruled out. A complex low pressure system has been hovering over central and southeastern North Carolina, but above-average rainfall has been the norm for the past couple of weeks even as far as Charlotte.
