Data continues to come in regarding the record rainfall year of 2018 in WNC, and I wanted to share some interesting maps that NOAA has generated. Below you can see the total estimated radar rainfall for the year of 2018. As you can see, many locations along the Blue Ridge Escarpment received over 100” of rainfall. Even in Buncombe Co. some gauges in Fairview & Black Mountain topped the 100” mark. The wet pattern looks to continue into 2019, but hopefully we can experience some drying over the next week that will minimize flash flooding threats!
