Drought Conditions Developing Across North Carolina

GREENSBORO, N.C. — November is typically one of our drier months, but this November has been even drier than usual.
According to the United States Drought Monitor, nearly half the state is abnormally dry, and 14% of the state is dealing with moderate drought conditions.
Through November 27th, at Piedmont-Triad International Airport, our November rain total is nearly 2" below average for the month.
For the entire year, we’re still running a slight rainfall surplus.
Our next shot of rain won’t arrive until Thursday night into Friday morning as a cold front moves through the area.
However, rain totals aren’t expected to be high enough to help much with the drought conditions.
The rain will likely be light and scattered in nature.
The locations that do receive rain, will likely see rain totals less than a quarter of an inch.
The rain chance will end by Friday afternoon, leading to another dry weekend.
