As is typical of our summer weather, August rain was boom or bust across the Commonwealth. Some places got torrential downpours while others have seen dry conditions worsen. Check the map below for the full story. It’s a map that shows the rainfall deficit or surplus for Virginia for the month of August.
The grey, blue and green areas are running normal or at a surplus while areas in yellow or orange show a deficit. There are a lot of folks out there who would like to see some rain soon. While just a few miles away, it’s still soggy! Norfolk had its third rainiest August on Record but just up the road in much of Southern and Central Virginia it’s been very dry.
We’re now in the time of year when we look to the tropics for rainfall… Erika is out there but not looking promising to deliver us rain.
