Not only will the dry stretch be coming to an end, but also the above average temperatures. Today we will see highs top out in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees.
Tuesday and Wednesday will be in the upper 70s and lower 80s. Thursday we will briefly bounce back into the mid 80s, but going into Friday and the weekend we will back down around average. Our average for this time of the year should be in the mid to low 70s.
The rain this week will be nothing compared to the rain that Hurricane Florence dumped over North Carolina. Swansboro, NC picked up 33.90", as of Sunday 9/16/18 at 2pm. That sets a record for the highest amount of rainfall from a tropical disturbance in North Carolina.
