Since this Mornings Early report

We have received TODAY, (I averaged this out between Weather Stations from the beach to the "Official readings" at the KILM Airport).. About 10 weather Stations around  New Hanover Co.. Carolina/Wrightsville Beaches, and Neighborhoods, (including the State Port & UNCW), and  between them & the Airport..

In addition too, what I reported Early this morning, which Is about 5" + inches, rain amounts included since yesterday

Is around 3.0" +/- inches.... Today alone,,  there's still a few hours to go until 12AM.. 

IMBY I got 3.27" today, AFTER My report Early this morning 2.20,, + 3.27(today) = 5.47" inches of Rain IMBY Since yesterday afternoon..

Around WILM Some MORE and SOME Less..

Broken clouds & STILL light rain in the area(s)..

Peaks of "Sun" between the cloud deck(s)..

Constant Thunder in the Distance.. If not overhead..

So...

Current Obs..

73/81

Currently 81..

Humidity 84%

Dew point 75.4%

Pressure 30.07 inches

Winds. SSW 0~3 mph

Water temp still at 83F

Updated AFD...

through sunset: numerous showers/tstms continue to fire across
the interior late this afternoon ahead of the sea breeze. This
activity will gradually move east, possibly reaching the
interior coastal counties before weakening. Locally heavy
rainfall and minor flooding remain the primary hazards along
with gusty winds and cloud-to-ground lightning. While an
isolated strong/severe wet microburst can not be completely
ruled out, the overall risk for severe weather remains low.

Tonight: low-level convergence will gradually shift back east
into the Atlantic later this evening as sea breeze dissipates
inland and winds pick up over the coastal waters. A rich,
tropical environment (pwats over 2 inches) will remain in place
so expect convection to reignite over the coastal waters by
late evening and spread to the coast overnight as the low-level flow
veers slightly. This slight veering would direct much of the
heaviest rainfall back into the southeast North Carolina and
possibly as far south as the grand strand early Tuesday. In fact,
several of the various cams, including the h3r and high res arw,
show a similar heavy rain signal to what occurred this morning where
flash flooding was observed in the Carolina Beach area. Given the
current wet antecedent conditions and that another heavy rain signal
is observed in a number of the cams, a Flash Flood Watch has been
issued for Pender, New Hanover, Brunswick and coastal Horry counties
through noon Tuesday. Rainfall amounts of 1-3 inches will be
possible in this area with localized amounts in excess of 4 inches.

Oh MORE JOY

Got 0.50 overnight/early morning with 1.65 this afternoon for a total of 2.15 today.  Had 0.26 yesterday for a total of 2.41 this week.  1.99 last week for a total of 4.40 in the wet period (since July 23).  Peanuts compared to the coast, but enough to catch us up after a bit of a dry spell.

glad to hear you have been finally getting something. 

Looks like a particularly wet few days ahead here. Potential for training cells looks pretty good for north ga/western carolinas.  FFC's bullish totals look like a pretty good possibility. Already just had a brief shower today with more lining up.

73/80

currently 80f

Broken Clouds

Winds South @ 0~5mph

Humidity 89%

Dew Point 76.3 %

Pressure 30.11 inches

0.55 inches Rainfall today, as of 1:40 PM

 

 

As of the end of Monday, July 30, Wilmington has officially recorded 55.9 inches of rain in 2018. Average for the entire year is 57.6 inches! At this rate, the Port City stands an excellent chance, sometime later this year, of breaking its all-time annual rainfall record of 83.7 inches - set all the way back in 1877!   (NOTICE the RECORD DATE?) ;) It was during the *Maunder Minimum*

The National Weather Service continues a Flash Flood Watch for Brunswick, New Hanover, and Pender counties through midday Tuesday. With saturated grounds and the threshold for flooding so low, any spells of heavy rain may result in a poor-drainage or lowland flooding. Please stay alert!

Most of the main-stem rivers are in their banks, but the National Weather Service maintains a Flood Advisory for the Northeast Cape Fear River at Burgaw. With the river hovering between 8.5 and 10 feet through at least the first weekend of August, flooding will continue in the River Bend and River Birch areas.

TUESDAY FORECAST DETAILS: Another day: another deluge, at least for parts of the area, as tropical moisture feeds in from the south. Scattered showers and storms will present localized flooding, lightning, and wind issues. Otherwise, expect variably or mostly cloudy skies, light southerly breezes, and highs mainly in the middle 80s.

LONG-RANGE FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS: Scattered flooding, lightning, and wind issues may continue, but as the Bermuda High builds westward toward the Carolinas, daily odds for showers and storms will tend to decrease: 50% Wednesday, 30 to 40% Thursday and Friday, and 20 to 30% this weekend. Daily highs: mainly 80s. Nightly lows: 70s.

Didn't really expect much today but got hit by some healthy cells, sitting at 1.93" for the day, 4.33" for the week.

12.18" for the month, which is pretty impressive considering I had a two week period with 0.25" total.
