The latest 7-day QPF forecast shows that most areas of the Southeast will receive less than half an inch of rain this week.  The driest areas will be in eastern North Carolina, where abnormally dry conditions were identified in the Drought Monitor this week, and could signal the beginnings of a drought there.  The wettest area will be in the Florida peninsula, where moderate drought has developed over the last few weeks.  The rainfall is likely to provide some relief to folks there.  Note the heavy rain in California with the latest atmospheric river event, which is expected to put more stress on the Oroville Dam as they try to repair the erosion from the previous heavy rain in the area.
