Areas in the Catawba Valley saw two and a half months worth of rain over the past four days, said Carolina Weather Group meteorologist Scotty Powell.

Rain totals for the storm in the Catawba Valley averaged between 7-10 inches with a few anomalies in the Mountain View (approximately 15 inches) and River Bend (approximately 12 inches) areas, said Powell.

With downpours wreaking havoc on many roads in western North Carolina, Tuesday’s sunshine was a sign of relief. But Powell said the rain many not be completely gone.

Powell added that areas in the Catawba Valley could see rain showers beginning Wednesday morning. Those systems should move out by the evening.

Powell warned of a small possibility for additional flooding but nothing as heavy as the flooding over the weekend.

The forecast for the remainder of the week includes possible isolated showers on Thursday with the weekend being dry with low humidity, said Powell.
