This happened in Mt Olive in Southern Wayne County about an hour and a half ago. We received about twenty 911 calls reporting a funnel cloud as well. No reports of damage as of the end of my shift. There are several better pictures and videos of it on Facebook.

0.64" yesterday,

0.34" today.

1.21" overall since Thursday

Would have liked to get under one of those downpours that were attracted to Greensboro or Raleigh, but overall not too bad.

Finally got a gullywasher. 1.70" imby yesterday. .04 from the morning's showers and 1.66" from the 2 storms in the afternoon, followed by a long period of cool, light rain. Actually have puddles in the low spot in my backyard this morning

Glad we picked up 0.07" from several sprinkles yesterday.

Today's former 30% chance is now gone.

Thunderstorm in progress. Woohooo, we do need the rain.

Unfortunately the heaviest of it past to my south and east. Did manage to pick up .31" from it. And it definitely cooled it off. Currently 72/69

Man, that was disappointing.  Line of storms just missed to my north.  Then after it passed to my west, the line extended south.

To add insult to injury, it stabilized the atmosphere.  The previous 60% chance of rain is now 20%.

Incredible light show to my nothwest and west. Severe T-storm warning for my area. Will see if storms hold together.

Well, the "wet" period continued overnight. Received and additional 0.22" on top of the 0.16" from the storms earlier in the day for a daily total of 0.38." Really surprised storms were able to keep going overnight, with some strong ones in the Apex area. Seemed the convection earlier in the day had stabilized the atmosphere. Did not feel like it would rain again. I guess the earlier arrival of the first round allowed the full sunshine to generate enough instability that whatever feature that moved through was able to generate, maintain, and even strengthen convection across parts of central NC. Don't see that too often in these patterns overnight in this area. Some areas, my office in Garner included, seem to have really been dumped on overnight. Standing water everywhere

Picked up 1.02" yesterday. Big win for us. Unfortunately a house down the street from me got hit by lightning and was pretty much destroyed.

Saw on the FB today that New Bern has already doubled it's normal number of 90+ high temps for the year and it is not even mid August yet.

Had a severe thunderstorm warning today and managed to pick up .60" from it. No wind or hail but lots of close lightning strikes. This gives us 2.40" for the week. Every thing is greening up.

1.23” in the old rain gauge this morning.  A small thunderstorm rolled over us last night and we got lucky.

Well looks like the forecast has backed off the mid to upper 90s it was showing for the upstate the next couple days, which is fine by me. So far the highest GSP  has seen over the past week is 94 and that's the only day I hit 90 IMBY. At 2pm GSP is at 87, I'm at 84.5. Really not terrible for a mid August heat wave.

We are also at that point in time when the late afternoon heat isn't quite as intense.  As long as you stay in the office during the mid-day hours you can still mow the lawn after supper without frying.  Mid-day 90s quickly drop to low 80's and upper 70's which ain't bad.  Another 3-4 weeks and those 7am bus stops will be far more enjoyable.  Hang on friends, those 90 day winter outlooks will be coming into range very soon!
