Posted: 18 Sep 2018 05:34 AM

What's left of Hurricane Florence is finally moving up the eastern US coast. It left a tremendous mess over North and South Carolina after dumping a significant amount of rain. The featured chart shows the year to date accumulated precipitation for Wilmington, NC for this year, 1999, 2007, and the observed range based on period of record data. Even before Florence, the site was already at a record accumulation. The year of Hurricane Floyd (1999) is plotted as well, as it was the previous record accumulation and whose jump in year to date total came about at the same time as Florence.

Good = 16
Bad = 1
