Seems that our rain over recent months has come in bunches… long dry spells interupted by torrential dousings. A big part of the reason is simple; two tropical systems and one nor’easter.
Fay’s remnants, followed a few weeks later by Hanna, and now an almost wintertime-like coastal storm. Each responsible for a multitude of various advisories for either flooding rain, wind, or both. The storm of the moment lashed coastal Virginia with strong winds, rough surf, and coastal flooding. Now it’s pummelling interior portions of the state with very heavy showers and even some thunder.
This storm will be one that wants to linger, drifting inland over North Carolina Friday before dissolving away this weekend. The upshot is that we may continue to see showers through at least the start of the weekend. Did I mention that the State Fair’s in town?
