(NORTH CAROLINA NEWS NEWTOWRK) — While spring rains this year were few and far between, rainfalls in recent days are leading to hope that drought conditions will be eased.
State Climatologist Corey Davis says that the summer months usually don’t have consistent rainfall.
Davis says those rains the last few days are helping the drought situation.
He says the dry conditions last month were a case of too much of a good thing.
As of Tuesday, June 1, two thirds of the state’s counties are in some form of drought status, including Wayne County.
The mid and late week rains would be reflected on the next week’s drought map.
