- It’s been a wet year across the Carolinas, and the rainfall totals are really adding up.

From hurricanes to big storm systems, so far, almost five feet of rain has fallen this year.

Charlotte is almost 17 inches above normal when it comes to precipitation totals. September was the biggest month for rainfall in part due to Hurricane Florence.

The storm caused damage and flooding across the Carolinas, and brought almost nine and a half inches of rain in 30 days.

Then, Hurricane Michael hit in October. Some neighborhoods felt Michael more than Florence.

October and November both saw above average rainfall totals, and December isn't over yet.

So far this month, nearly six inches of rain has fallen. That's about 2.5 inches above average, and right now, a flood watch is in effect for several counties.
