North Carolina rainfall data map
The North Carolina WSC has released a new map interface to our rainfall data.
Through this map, you can view cummulative rainfall totals at USGS raingages across the state, in 1-, 2-, 3-, 6-, 12-, and 24-hour and 2- and 7-day increments.
Map features include options to view National Weather Service rainfall disribution maps and a sortable table of gaged rainfall totals.
Special thanks to Terry Ortel and the Illinois Water Science Center, who developed the initial rainfall data map and provided technical assistance as we implemented the data maps for North Carolina.
