This Week’s Rain May End North Carolina’s Drought and Wildfires


We finally have rain in the forecast for the coming week – and this time it might actually be substantial enough to put out the wildfires and potentially even stop the drought.

Over the next several days, is predicting as much as 1-3” of rain for the North Carolina mountains, and about half as much for the Charlotte region:


Although many of the wild fires in North Carolina are mostly contained, new fires continue to start, and will likely continue to grow if our drought persists (check out our ongoing article about the NC wild fires here).

Let’s hope this week’s rain actually comes, and that the occasional rain shower will return to our region.
