How Dry We've Been...
Since the January 1st reset date represents kind of an arbitrary point of reference for a rainfall deficit, it's also useful to consider where our rainfall stands across fixed, sliding time windows. You can find links to sources for that information on our WRAL Water Watch page. At this time, for example, we have deficits of about 2.9 inches over the past 30 days, 6.5 inches over the past 90 days, and 7.3 inches over the past year.
