RALEIGH — Members of the North Carolina Drought Management Advisory Council are meeting to discuss the future dry conditions they expect in the state, despite recent rainfall in
some areas.

The council is meeting Friday morning at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds.

Parts of the state have had more than an inch of rain in the past week, which has increased stream flows, lake levels and groundwater.

But members of the council say the state is entering what historically has been one of the driest times of the year in North Carolina.

As of Thursday, 12 counties in southwestern North Carolina had severe drought conditions and 15 were in moderate drought. The U.S. Drought Monitor says 45 counties in the western Piedmont and eastern part of the state were classified as abnormally dry.
