The pattern of late-day thundershowers each day is not so unusual, according to meteorologist Darrin </span>Figursky<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> from the </span><a href="http://radar.weather.gov/" style="line-height: 1.5;">National Weather Service</a><span style="line-height: 1.5;"> in Raleigh. He says what has been a bit atypical is the amount of widespread rainfall we've gotten as a result of these storms.</span></p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">"Now a lot of that was probably due to the remnants of Andrea at the beginning of the month, where on one day we got four to five inches," </span>Figursky<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> says.&nbsp; "So for the month with that in mind, we're running three to four inches above normal for the month. We're only maybe an inch or an inch or an inch and a quarter of being in the top five wettest Junes of all time."</span></p><p> Thu, 27 Jun 2013 21:14:10 +0000 Catherine Brand 18015 at http://wunc.org Thunderstorms Continue, Bring Unusually High Amount Of Rain
